A hospital in Florida has had an unexpected visitor that succeeded in fooling a lot of people from the staff and a serious number of patients posing as a real doctor. Even if his name is unknown or most probably not released to the press because the boy is a minor ( he is 17 years of age),he became quite popular online for his act of creativity and courage. Unfortunately, the policemen that solved the case weren’t very pleased to meet him.
Sebastian Kent, gynecologist at St. Mary’s Hospital in Florida, accompanied by the nurses, told the police that the boy was dressed in a white laboratory coat, with an embroidered word written on the front of it: “anesthesiology”. The stethoscope on his neck and the mask on his face were the details that kept him away from being discovered.
Doctors admit of have seeing the teen throughout the hospital daily for weeks, but he was just wandering on the corridors in his own pace. They have never seen him enter any patient’s room to see them or talk to them about medical reasons.
Mr. Kent gradually observed the behavior and the medical knowledge of the boy, that wasn’t very accurate, which raised some suspicions. He tried to cover everything by saying to the hospital’s staff that he has been a doctor for years and that all his family members know this specific fact about him. After the police and his parents were told to come at the hospital for him, Sebastian Kent found a note on his desk in which the teen asked him to let him “shadow” the doctor, but no action was taken by him, whatsoever. The hospital has made some statements to the press, assuring everyone that the boy didn’t cause any trouble.
“[he] never had contact with any hospital patients and did not gain access to any patient care areas of the hospital at any time.”
All in all, the report that has been made by the Police states that there was no crime committed and that the identity of the suspect has been redacted from the police report, because of his young age. The Police report was published by The Smoking Gun newspaper.
Taking matters into her own hands, in order not to create misunderstandings, the teen’s mother told the police that her son was being treated by an undisclosed illness and that he refused to take his medication.
