hi. my colleague has just imparted with me her experience yesterday about our patient in the opd section.
a certain muslim teenager was brought by her relatives to our hospital because of some behavioral problems. you see, she was extremely powerful and was yelling to everyone about why 'he' was tortured and killed.
my colleague prayed loudly the "i beleive in god" prayer but was stopped by some hospital baptist watchers who were there coz my partner was not 'cleansed'.
i wonder if you have the same experiences and how did you deal with it. our doctor on duty hid inside her room by the way.:zzzzz

Maybe things are different in the Philippines regarding this kind of thing. Here in New York, how would I have handled it? I'd have called security and had everyone hauled out of there! Just NOT gonna go on in your average hospital!
Then again, if they all walked into a psych unit or a psych hospital, I'm sure there's a different procedure. In any event, there's no way I'd expect (or put up with) my colleague praying loudly over the situation.
