SHAMEFUL PHOTOS: Doctor Caught Touching and Fondling Pregnant Womanâ€™s B**bsBy kellychi 03:14 Tue, 21 Jan 2014 Comments
An inpatient pregnant woman (names withheld)
recently shared an unlucky experience she had while
on admission at a Ifako -Ijaye General Hospital in
Lagos but she chose not to report the incidence
because â€œhe accepted his fault and apologized
repeatedlyâ€ she recalled.
According to her â€ I was
experiencing some pains during labour, I had
complained to the consultant who assured me that it
was not out of the ordinary.
The pain was persistent much later in the evening. I
panicked.â€ â€ I was worried and seriously disturbed. Negative
thought was creeping in. I could not resist the urge to
consult one of the young doctors who was on night duty.
He promptly responded. He felt some parts of my big
tummy and then requested I open up. He inserted his bare
hands in my vagina and eventually told me I was just
panicky.â€ She went on â€œI felt relieved by his assuring
affirmationâ€. She however re-evaluated the incidence and
remembered that the Doctor ignored the box of gloves by
her side table which every patient is mandated to have when
on such admission.
â€œI felt uncomfortable with the scenario. Even if I was
overwhelmed, he should be calm and be more professional.â€
She confronted him. He was said to have agreed that indeed
his action was unprofessional.
He pleaded with the woman
not to lodge the complaint before his superiors as it will be a
major dent on his professional career or make him lose his
job. â€œHe kept checking on me and apologizing.
Until I felt embarrassed and gave him my word not to report
him to the authoritiesâ€. Dr Kola Afolabi, Medical Director of
Ago Medical Center, Lagos said â€œIt is unhygienic. There is
high risk of infecting the innocent woman or getting himself
infected. It is unethical. Totally unacceptableâ€ Another Medical
Practitioner who spoke under anonymity stated â€œ It is
obvious that he is attracted to the woman and saw that as an
opportunity to fondle her, rather than examine her. He
deserves to be punished.â€
