Health professionals of all varieties play an important role in society, but as is the case in any industry this doesn’t mean they’re all going to get along with each other. Never has this rung truer than in today’s story emerging from the UK, when an ambulance driver was left stunned by a rude note left on his vehicle by a doctor.
Paramedic Zain Ali Kazmi found a note on his ambulance after parking in a bay at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield, England, and he couldn’t have been more stunned.
The note read, “Think about others before you block others’ car”, and was signed “A&E Consultant”.
Kazmi was fuming in a post on Facebook: “Came out of ED to find this! Another note on an ambulance this time from an A&E consultant outside A&E because he was blocked in a bay where he shouldn’t have parked himself!”
“We get enough of this stuff from the public. It’s not nice seeing it from another health care professional.”
“There are some spaces there to park in but normally the police park there. It’s not a staff car park. It’s outside A&E.
“He was going round taking pictures at first and then he left the note. But he didn’t leave a note on the other consultant’s car that was there.
“You don’t just leave a note on an ambulance. It’s not the way to deal with it.”
What are your thoughts? Do you think the doctor is out of line?
