In a massive breach of safety and ethics doctors in a Moldovan state run hospital have been caught on camera using construction tools to perform surgery. The shocking video was leaked and published on the internet causing a massive backlash from the public and government officials.
The doctors are defending their actions by saying that the hospital has not received any new equipment for years as the graphic video was recorded in a children’s hospital on Monday. A full investigation is now underway as officials explore all the circumstances including a claim that the video was used to discredit a doctor by a disgruntle employee.
Moldova is a former Soviet republic of 4 million and is one of the poorest nations in Europe.
