Any person or any profession should not take bribes. This is what "red envelopes" are. They are bribes. I read ChinaDaily every day. All I read about is corruption and bribery in Chinese governmeny, politics, industry, business and now medicine. All forms of bribery in China must stop if the Chinese society is to survive. Do not allow what happened in Russia and several other countries to happen in China. I have studied Asian culture all my life. I love Chinese culture and art. And all of the people I have met on my journies to China. Yes, bribery is part of Chinese culture, but for a modern China to move forward, the thinking of the people and the government must change. Bribery in any form  only helps the rich become more rich, and the poor to become even more poor. Bribery destroys faith in government and destroys trust from the people. Red envelopes are to give to children on special days.

I know a neurosurgeon in Guangzhou who barely earns any money from her official salary...

Bribery is wrong. This is not Socialism. This systemic corruption just works to benefit the rich at the expense of the poor. Feudalism is alive and well!

Speaks directly at the lack of integrity and professionalism of doctors in a situation such as this.  I went to several of  the more 'esteemed' hospitals in Xi'an and was basically informed that to get the best medical care, I should include hongbao.   When a person is sick or in need of any treatment, the doctors do know how to play the game.
