It is not the first time doctors get hurt or even killed by patients. Since it is not a random incident, the question is why is there such a hatred of doctors? How can doctors and patients regain trust in each other.

(Xinhua) GUANGZHOU, May 5 -- A retired doctor in south China's Guangdong Province was stabbed in a knife attack by a former patient on Thursday afternoon.

Police authorities in Yuexiu District of the provincial capital Guangzhou said they first received the report of the attack at the home of Chen Zhongwei, former director of the stomatology department of the Guangdong General Hospital at 5:20 p.m..

The doctor, who suffered life-threatening injuries, was then immediately rushed to the hospital. Dozens of medical experts were being involved in the emergency treatment.

After the stabbing, the male attacker jumped from the balcony of Chen's home and fell to death, the initial police investigation showed.

Police are further investigating the identity of the attacker and his motive.

The hospital confirmed that the man received medical treatment from Chen 25 years ago and had a history of mental disorder.

The hospital strongly denounced the violent attack against medical staff and was assisting the police investigation, a hospital official said.

Money and patients, which is more important for doctors nowadays?
If it's money, then this kind of case will not surprise me!
Remember the patient committed suiside after he stabbed the doctor, so what make a man give up his life to revenge?

Patients want to get a better treatment, but the result goes to the opposite side totally after spending much fees on it. If you have the experience of seeing a doctor, you know that several hundreds yuan which would be spent on it is quite common. The expense for medical treatment is too much.

Why is there such hatred of doctors in China? I don't know, but they should throw the book at anyone attacking a doctor. Not long ago relatives stormed a hospital in Shanghai and fought with security over an incident. At my hospital I still visit monthly, its likely I will hear someone shouting and screaming at nurses as well.......
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

Those in the medical profession have contact with vulnerable and distressed patients every day. If such patients feel unfairly treated, if they are kept waiting for a long time, if they are not treated sympathetically with reassurance... then distress turns into desperation and anger.
Doctors and teachers in China are paid very little for their services in the most important areas of society. Perhaps if they were treated as professionals with adequate reward for their work, it would attract more skilled and hard working staff. Also the hospital management perhaps should constantly monitor the effectiveness of their service to avoid anger and upsets in the workplace.
I extend sympathies to the doctor and the family of the patient.

Doctors in the west have inadvertently killed thousands of patients for profit.
The lawyers protect the doctors. It is part of the basic corruption that is the capitalist system.
The doctors get what's left over after the insurance companies and the legal system take what they want.
After the dust settles on all these malpractice lawsuits the deceased are an afterthought.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
