A Doctor Was Fired, So He Decided to Provide Care to His Patients on the Sidewalk
Today we at Bright Side can’t wait to tell you the stirring story of Dr. Rodrigo Ferreira Gomes, 31, from Itapajé, Ceará (Brazil). After being dismissed from his job, he didn’t give up on his patients and found another way to serve them.
This story shows us that, however sad and complicated a situation may be, nothing can stop us from doing something that we love.
After arriving at work one day, Rodrigo found, to his great surprise, that another professional was working in his office. Later he learned that the hospital administration had fired him.
“When I arrived at work there was another doctor in my office and nobody had informed me of this decision.”Rodrigo Ferreira Gomes
The doctor, who is a specialist in community medicine, had worked in the same place for 6 years. He realized that he couldn’t leave his patients unattended and found a solution to this problem.
He assured his patients that he would return. He then went and got a table and chair, placed them on the sidewalk of the hospital, and began to provide care to his patients who were waiting in line.
“My patients were waiting for me, so I told them I had been fired. I assured them that I was going to take care of them all and I asked them to wait, I went to my house, I got a table and chair and I went back”.Rodrigo Ferreira Gomes
