"I should have read up on how to read a CTG on Google before agreeing to the doctor's decision"

This is roughly what was written by a lady on her blog relating her displeasure regarding her experience delivering at a private hospital. She bashed the doctor pretty nicely. She clearly mentioned the doctor's name and the hospital. It appeared like she was all out to shame the doctor and the hospital. The comments that were made by some members of the public were mean and viscous as well. I am not able to provide a link to the website as it has been removed from the net since 20th September 2014. Instead, a special blog was set up as a statement of apology by the blogger.
Now, that IS something. A specific web address, for ONE specific purpose...looks like someone received a note from a lawyer. I find this interesting as there has been a never ending doctor bashing on social media lately such as the rather kurang ajar lady complaining about a doctor at ED taking a rest in the wee hours of the morning and not see her NON-EMERGENCY case quickly. I give the team at KJMC (lawyers, management and Dr Fatima Najla) a thumbs up for upholding their rights. Dr Fatima Najla deserves a pat on the back for not proceeding any further and sue the blogger. I don't think its worth it, the blogger should be given a chance as well.
