Doctor-patient dispute turns violent

CITY police are investigating a doctor-patient dispute in which a physician was beaten in a downtown hospital.

The patient, surnamed Yao, had drank some alcohol before hitting the doctor, Dong Bing, according to city police.

Witnesses said Yao claimed "his father is a bureau director" during the argument.

The incident became public knowledge after an online post showed a doctor was beaten and the patient was "arrogant during the process."

The poster was believed to be a colleague of Dong.

The attack happened on Monday when Yao came to Jing'an District Central Hospital after injuring his hand, the hospital authority said.

Yao started beating Dong who asked him to sign a consent form, according to Li Tianya, a top hospital official.

Police are investigating.
