    It baffles the mind to imagine that someone unknown to nursing staff on a ward can be allowed to just walk into a ward and start seeing patients. Even students are expected to pay courtesy call to the nurse on duty to announce their presence. How come the incidence of these fake “doctors” seem to be getting common and detected rather poorly by those on the wards? Someone needs to introduce some common sense checks and balances at our health institutions and give the health care worker profession some much needed decency
