(Reuters) – Police in China have arrested a man on suspicion of castrating or partially castrating four patients at a nursing home, state media said on Thursday, the latest scandal to hit the country’s medical sector.
Doctors discovered on Tuesday that three men at the nursing home in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang had had either one or both of their testicles removed with a blunt razor, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
The fourth victim was not found until later after police carried out a full inspection of the facility, the news agency said.
The victims are in hospital, though their injuries were not life threatening, Xinhua added.
