The hospital's deputy director Tom Michielsens: "He used an excuse to enter the hospital in the early hours. He got hold of a doctor's coat and went on to impersonate a member of the medical profession."
"In the rooms of several patients he said that he was a doctor. He put questions to a number of patients and in one case there was physical contact."
It was a patient who alerted the nursing staff when he became suspicious. When the bogus doctor noticed this, he ran off. The hospital and several patients have filed a complaint with the judicial authorities. The police are investigating this bizarre and unusual incident.
