Police have arrested an on-duty doctor in a hospital in Opoczno (Łódź region) after patients raised concerns over the mental and physical state of the doctor.
According to an eye witness testimony, the doctor behaved unnaturally and lost his balance from time to time.
– An alcohol test revealed that the doctor had 2.6 per mille of alcohol in the body. Police have secured medical records to check whether the doctor endangered the health or even the lives of patients while being on duty. In addition, policemen secured three glass bottles of alcohol and two beer cans in the doctor’s room – says Adam Kolasa, spokesperson for Łódź police.
