How do I get a venereal disease test?
A doctor who had to administer a venous blood test after the patient had a vasectomy was forced to resign because of concerns about the patient’s health, the Indian Express reported on Monday.
Dr M.P. Rao was in the process of administering a test when he was forced by his superiors to take his seat.
The test was performed by Dr Manoj Singh who is the medical director of the M.S.
F Hospital in Chennai.
According to the newspaper, Rao was asked to take the test by the health minister.
The Indian Express also reported that Rao, who is a surgeon, said he was in shock when he heard about the incident.
“I did not think that I would be asked to administer such a test, and even though I am a doctor, I do not believe that the test would be suitable,” Rao said.
“There is no way to ensure that the results will be available,” he said.
Rao had to leave the M S F Hospital in February to continue his studies in the UK.
His resignation was accepted by the hospital.
The report says Rao resigned because he did not want to lose his job, but also that the hospital’s doctors are concerned about the possibility of the test becoming ineffective due to the poor circulation.
