Doctor suspended for wrong cause of death

SINGAPORE: A doctor had certified that a patient had died of congestive cardiac failure. But the Singapore Medical Council found that there was not enough evidence or available medical records of the patient to make such a conclusion. It said the only conclusion which could be made was that the patient had hypertension. For this, Dr Kwan Kah Yee, 60, a general practitioner at Superbcity Hospice in Peninsula Plaza, was suspended for three months, fined S$5,000 and censured. A family member of the deceased patient had lodged a complaint back in November 2009 and an inquiry into the complaint was held between April and July last year. Dr Kwan contested the charge. His three-month suspension took effect on August 12, 2011.
