name the crime

What is the biggest crime here:

  • a senior heart surgeon leaves a public hospital heart patient on the operating table in distress, in order to perform an operation in a private hospital, and the first patient dies?
  • that the same surgeon did this on more than one occasion?
  • that a patient was forced to make a donation to the hospital fund rasing arm before he would perform an urgent operation?
  • that these forced donations are common practice in hospitals?
  • that it is barely reported in the English-language press?
  • that it took 16 years for the Health Ministry to finally make a decision in the case?
  • the penalty was a paltry 3 month suspension of his medical license?
  • or that the doctor had the chutzpa to appeal the suspension?
