A Florida teenager posed as "Dr. Robinson" wandered the halls of St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach for nearly a month before being caught.
The hospital dispatched a statement to local news affiliates:
On January 13, an individual was detained by security at St. Mary’s Medical Center after falsely presenting himself as a physician. The individual never had contact with any hospital patients and did not gain access to any patient care areas of the hospital at any time. The hospital immediately notified local authorities, who took the individual into custody, and we are cooperating with their ongoing investigation. The safety and security of patients is our highest priority.
Despite the hospital's assurances, the teenager, in fact, was in an examination room with a patient, a mask on his face and stethoscope around his face, when he was approached by security and arrested. No charges were filed against him.
