Nurse accused of transferring money from comatose Covid 19 patient’s account
A nurse at a private hospital somewhere in Thailand used a patient’s smartphone in a comatose state to transfer money from his account to her own account, a Facebook post alleged.
The post went viral on Sunday but was later invisible because the poster may have deleted it or reset privacy.
The Facebook user initially wrote that the victim was the father of his girlfriend who succumbed late to the Covid19 virus.
He said he had lodged a complaint with the hospital management and the police.
He explained that after her father passed away, his girlfriend checked his account on his smartphone. She discovered that there were only 1,500 Baht left in the account from earlier deposited 5,000 Baht.
He added that his girlfriend’s father lost consciousness on August 23 and went into a critical condition on August 30.
“Cash was transferred three times: twice 1,000 baht to Suthamas’ account on August 26 and 27 and 1,500 baht to make a payment on August 30,” the post said.
“In addition, the nurse removed the transfer receipts and avoided charging the smartphone, so I think she did this on several patients.”
