‘I’m not a doctor’: Physician tells hospital nurse he didn’t know he was pregnant
A Spokane, Wash., physician told a nurse he was not a physician but told her he needed to be, a report from Inside Health News found.
Dr. Eric C. O’Brien, a chiropractor, said he was a registered nurse at the hospital.
When he went in to see the patient, he asked to see her cervix and told her that he had to be careful with her medication because he was expecting to become pregnant.
The nurse told him he was on a one-month wait list to be pregnant and would have to wait for a doctor to give her the green light to be.
He said he did not know he had been pregnant, the report states.
The hospital did not respond to requests for comment from Inside health News.
