Unlicensed Medic Arrested Over Patient’s Death

by Phan Soumy | June 8, 2016 | អានជាភាសាខ្មែរ

An unlicensed medic was arrested in Tbong Khmum province on Monday after administering three injections to a patient who then died en route to a nearby clinic, a police official said on Tuesday.

Pich Nhor, 71, a longtime medical practitioner in Suong City who treated patients at their homes, was called to the house of Em Thuol, 46, on Monday morning by relatives of the man, who had been suffering from breathing problems, blackouts and excessive perspiration, according to city police chief Chhorn Sokthun.

Upon arriving, Mr. Nhor injected Em Thuol in the hip with camphor and a vitamin B complex—used to increase blood flow and boost metabolism, respectively—and administered a shot of hydrocortisone, an anti-inflammatory, to his shoulder, Mr. Sokthun said.

“Thirty minutes after he was injected, his conditions became worse, so his family decided to take him to a clinic,” he said. “But he died on the way.”

Unlicensed Medic Charged With Unintentional Murder of Patient

by Phan Soumy | June 9, 2016

An elderly village medic in Tbong Khmum province was charged with manslaughter and practicing without a license on Wednesday after a patient in his care died after receiving a trio of injections on Monday, a police official said.

Pich Nhor, 71, went to the home of Em Thuol, 46, who had been suffering from breathing problems, blackouts and excessive perspiration, according to Suong City police chief Chhorn Sokthun, and administered three injections: camphor to increase blood flow, a vitamin B complex to boost metabolism and hydrocortisone to reduce inflammation.

But Em Thuol’s symptoms only worsened, and he died en route to a local clinic, leading police to arrest Mr. Nhor at his home. The medic was sent to the provincial court on Wednesday afternoon, said Pin Socheatra, deputy chief of the city’s serious crimes section.

“In the file that I sent to the court, I [recommended] charging him with manslaughter,” Mr. Socheatra said. “He was…charged with opening a clinic without a license and with intentional murder.”
