And apparently it seems, to restore public confidence in the medical profession, the General Medical Council (GMC) of the UK recently, permanently struck Bawa Garba off the medical register.
This gross mismanagement of Bawa Garba’s case has convulsed the medical fraternity globally and thousands have tweeted their support with #IAmHadiza.
The working conditions on that unfortunate day was exceptionally bad, which is not all that uncommon in many hospital scenarios worldwide, Malaysia included.
Bawa Garba, apart from her own clinical work had to cover the patient load of two other doctors and a third doctor, her consultant in charge who was away teaching.
