Acupuncture Patient Left on Table, Doctor Forgets and Goes Home
An Austrian woman is getting a lifetime of free treatments after her doctor forgot he had left her on the table covered in pins.
The 61-year-old patient, Vivi Ziegler, was in for a treatment when her acupuncturist went to his office to take a phone call, then after the call, forgot she was still on the table and locked up for the night.
“I wasn’t worried as it was warm and relaxing and I fell asleep, but when I woke up it was dark and cold and I was only partially dressed,” Ziegler told Orange News.
Since she doesn’t plan on “making a fuss” about the situation, her doctor has offered her free visits for life.
