- A local doctor provided the perfect response to a cocky social media user recently, who claimed that all South African doctors have no patience
- The doctor, Dr Lerato Masemola, calmly outlined a heroic situation where she had to be extremely patient in order to save a prematurely-born baby’s life
- Dr Masemola ended the amazing story with the wise words “don’t generalize”
A social media user learnt an important lesson recently after they made a post declaring that all South African doctors don’t have patience.
The post was made in response to a video that showed foreign doctors managing to restart a prematurely-born baby’s heart after it was born.
A renowned South African doctor, Dr Lerato Masemola, replied to the person’s negative reaction to the video and put them firmly in their place.
Dr Masemola told the social media user of a time when she stayed up all night, breathing manually for a prematurely-born baby, because she was patient and dedicated.
The passionate doctor then ended off her tale with some wise advice:
Briefly.co.za was pleased to see that many were inspired by Dr Masemola’s dedication and patience and gave their thanks to all the South African doctors giving their time and passion to their patients.
Others were still feeling negative about the attitudes of South Africa’s doctors, especially since Dr Masemola happened to mention in her post that she didn’t trust her colleagues to keep the baby alive.
The inspiring doctor, however, had a brilliant clap-back for that negativity too.
