Chinese Man Ejected From Hospital By Police When He Refused to Leave After 3 Years
A 55-year-old Chinese man known as Chen has been forcibly removed from a hospital by police when he refused to leave a hospital after over three years of being treated. Chen had first been admitted into the hospital in August 2011, after he had sustained injuries from a road traffic accident.
He underwent treatment for a total of 4 months after he was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis. After the treatment was completed, doctors discharged him, as he was fit to go home. However, Chen refused to leave the hospital, claiming that he was still in pain, and was unable to straighten his legs.
According to Daily Mail, he stated that it was the hospital’s responsibility to take care of him. He even missed his son’s wedding, as he didn’t want to leave the hospital.
Numerous tests had been carried, which clearly showed that Chen was healthy. However, he disputed the reports, insisting that he was ill.
Earlier this week, the hospital was granted a court order to have Chen forcibly removed from his hospital bed. He subsequently padlocked himself to to the bed to prevent authorities from carrying him out. However, the padlocks were broken and he was ejected.
