medicaldoctorSunday Tribune reports that patients treated by an unregistered doctor at the Daymed Private Hospital in Pietermaritzburg plan to sue the facility.  

Four patients who were treated by Cuban national Juan Luis Yings Elutil, known as Dr Omar, said last week that they were horrified.  Elutil, who was caught after an investigation by medical aid firm Discovery Health, was arrested by police two weeks ago and charged with fraud by the Health Professionals Council of SA (HPCSA) for practising while unregistered for 14 years.  The hospital is owned by Dr Navind Dayanand, who last week denied knowing Elutil was unregistered.  Last week, the Mountain Rise police station sent out a statement stating that the case against Elutil had provisionally been withdrawn in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate‚Äôs Court, but this was died by the National Prosecuting Authority.
