Medical Cock Up

by duncanr

62-year-old Dr Mohan Tharakan of Whitley Bay faces being struck off by the General Medical Council after claims a patient who complained of a sore throat was diagnosed with erectile dysfunction – Jeez, that would kinda want to make you question his medical competence !!!

Turns out there was a bit more to it, however. The doctor hadn’t misdiagnosed the patient. He correctly sent him away with a prescription for some antibiotics. He then entered the erectile dysfunction diagnosis in the patients notes, wrote out a prescription (in the patient’s name) for some tablets to help cure impotency, then trotted down to the chemist to collect the tablets for himself
