Yes..from the link above^
I was thinking same like Andy SNK, what nonsense abt public docs, like prv ones would be any diff. The whole thing sounds devastating, seems totally avoidable if one of them or someone had noticed the meds/carrier status but filing criminal charges, manslaughter to boot out of the blue after 6 yrs is all kinds of wrong.. like police catching you for murder when they know exactly why the victim died 6 yrs ago.. if I were a doc of any kind, I would be looking v seriously to leave HK asap..
So now I'm wondering if this had anything do with it.. could it be a one-off, not a trend.. Alex Lam going on abt public docs wldn't sound that nonsensical then..
Tang eventually underwent two surgeries by a team of top liver experts including now Secretary for Health Lo Chung-mau to receive part of a liver from an unrelated female donor

Medical council inquiry link below. Wishful thinking on my part for conspiracy.. doesn't look to be since the transplant op was bcos of acute liver failure caused by the 2 docs' forgetting to prescribe/check if any anti-virals alongside the high dose steroids meds..
Still dunno why manslaughter for this case ;_; the 2nd doc only saw the patient once.. sad outcome all round..
an interesting case.
The Medical Council allows the two doctors to continue to work as doctors (as they received suspended sentence). The Hospital Authority allows them to continue to work as doctors.
It would be interesting to see what the prosecution has to say as to why they are "grossly negligent".
I give credit to the doctors for not giving me a bullshit answer, ignoring my question, downplaying, etc, but surely a Hospital Authority built (or access to subscription to a) database / software / encyclopaedia / etc ought to exist!
