A Chinese man was left feeling both hurt and furious after he walked out of an emergency room with a bizarrely patched-up face, prompting laughter from onlookers. The man couldn’t understand why people were laughing at first, but after catching his reflection in a mirror, he came to realise his strangely startling appearance.
The incident reportedly occurred at a hospital in Henan Province, China, and left the 26 year old patient contemplating a lawsuit against the doctor for misuse of his medical license.
The man was brought to the emergency room following an accident. He emerged with a facial bandage applied in a very peculiar manner, causing people around him to chuckle uncontrollably. The patient’s initial confusion soon turned to annoyance as he realised the doctor had done an awful job with the bandages.
Fortunately, several individuals tried to console the man, assuring him that this type of bandaging would actually help him breathe better, see more clearly, and make eating and smoking easier. These assurances appeared to have a calming effect on the distressed patient. Nonetheless, as soon as the images of the poorly bandaged face surfaced online, they quickly went viral, spreading throughout the Internet like wildfire.
Various comments were seen circulating online, ranging from light-hearted to serious in nature:
- “This doctor must have a very laid-back and cruel approach to life!”
- “A warning for women who have just had a Caesarean section – don’t look at these pictures!”
- “When I fell off my bike and had to get stitches for my head, the emergency room doctor stitched the wound in the shape of a bow. I couldn’t help but laugh as I walked out of the hospital.”
- “Laughing at someone else’s pain is terrible, but I sincerely apologise because I can’t hold back my laughter.
- The doctor must really love cartoon characters!”
The surprising ordeal has generated a range of reactions, highlighting the sometimes unpredictable nature of emergency room treatments. While the man’s distress at his peculiar bandaging was understandable, ultimately, his story quickly gained popularity online as an amusing talking point. The case is also a reminder of the importance of compassionate, professional care in medical settings.
