They were conning patients who had
submitted their urine samples.
A reporter in China investigated whether hospitals were scamming patients with fake diagnostic tests.
He submitted urine samples to three different private hospitals, which gave him three different results:
- A hospital in Shijiazhuang said his urine contained bacteria and fungi and he needed a week of treatments costing about $600.
- A hospital in Shenyang said he had prostate calcification and a testicular cyst, which would cost him over $1200.
- Finally, a hospital in Changchun advised he get a “nuclear energy proton treatment” that would cost the reporter $1000 per day.
It was the fact that, instead of urine, the reporter had submitted three fake urine samples that were actually green tea.
If I were a punning man, I might call this one Three Cups of Pee.
