A doctor of surgery at the Second Xiangya Hospital who worked under Liu Xiangfeng for a week told the “medical community”: “Just from personal experience, Liu Chuanfeng will prescribe more drugs in chemotherapy, and a lot of chemotherapy The patient did not have a clear indication.

Is it true?
In the preliminary investigation of the Second Xiangya Hospital, the specific content of Liu Xiangfeng’s “irregular behavior in the medical process” was not disclosed. Whether it is consistent with the content of the revelations remains to be officially announced more investigation results.
The incident has also sparked heated debate in medical circles.
Medical V “Burning Superman Abao” questioned the authenticity of some of the revelations: “Many of the series of essays against Liu are very contrary to common sense. Logical judgment is impossible.”
He said: “There are many people involved in one operation. I can’t imagine that a well-known hospital expert with a higher education will be in front of so many undergraduate and brother departments in order to pick two dates with three cores. Do these things blatantly.”
Some people also pointed out in the comment area that there are bugs in the content of the allegations, such as overdose of chemotherapy drugs, which the pharmacy department and nurses will not use. The hospital’s rational drug use system directly stopped it.
Medical V “Lead Clothes Rose” pointed out that one of the accusations against it – “stealing malignant tumors of gynecological patients and lying about cholangiocarcinoma” is very outrageous. “How can this thing be stolen? It’s not a tissue at all, and the results of pathology are different. Is the pathologist an accomplice?”
In fact, the process of so-called “stealing tumors” does not only involve the pathology department. “Qianyi Qiangwei” said that Dr. Liu needs to get through the nurse who sent the bile duct, and the pathology department will issue a report and review , and 4 doctors in the two departments of preoperative CT and MRI, and at least 7 doctors have been connected. “This is far from the big picture, and it needs many people to collude and cooperate well.”
For this question, the above-mentioned doctor of surgery of the Second Xiangya Hospital told the “medical community”, “There is definitely something wrong with Liu Xiangfeng’s chemotherapy.”
“I don’t know the process of prescribing chemotherapy drugs, but the drug dose in the prescription is much higher than the therapeutic dose or even close to the lethal dose. After taking the drug, Liu Xiangfeng asked the lower-level doctors in this group to treat as normal. Dosage configuration, and the excess medicine is directly discarded.”
Xiangya Second Hospital stated that it will conduct further investigation on the clues about Liu Xiangfeng’s problems, make corresponding actions according to the investigation results, and announce to the public in a timely manner.
