In August 2008, Zhang Jinhua, a businessman who had just returned from Hungary, fell on the operating table of Wang Liangfa, the chief surgeon of Beijing minghuihong International Medical Beauty Clinic (hereinafter referred to as minghuihong Beauty Clinic). He suffered brain damage due to excessive anesthesia and became a vegetable. On October 6, 2018, after 10 years of coma, Zhang Jinhua finally died of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy.
For 12 years, Wang huankai, Zhang Jinhua’s husband, has been hoping to investigate the criminal responsibility of the parties concerned, but to no avail. On December 27, 2020, Red Star News reporter learned from Wang huankai that the chief surgeon Wang Liangfa had been arrested in September this year on the basis of the crime of medical malpractice.
Beijing Chaoyang District People’s Court confirmed to Red Star news that the court has officially accepted the case and will hold a court session on another day.
Businesswoman is fooled into “serious obesity” and fails to become a vegetable after liposuction
Before the accident, Zhang Jinhua was a businessman. She and her husband Wang huankai lived in Hungary. After years of hard work in a foreign country, “they are still successful, and the family has no worries about food and clothing.” In July 2008, Zhang Jinhua returned to China. Before long, Zhang Jinhua went to minghuihong beauty clinic for consultation.
Height 170cm, weight 61.6kg Zhang Jinhua, who is not fat in the eyes of ordinary people, in the analysis report of human body composition issued by minghuihong Beauty Clinic at that time, the percentage of body fat is “fat”, and the ratio of waist hip fat is “serious obesity”. Therefore, under the advice of the “experts” in the clinic, Zhang Jinhua agreed to the operation: no trace compact lifting, hyaluronic acid, liposuction (8 parts around the waist and abdomen)
At 7:00 p.m. on August 4, 2008, Zhang Jinhua came to minghuihong beauty clinic again. After paying more than 120000 yuan, he went into the operating room alone under the rule that “no family members are allowed to accompany him”. At 11:00 p.m., the chief surgeon Wang Liangfa performed liposuction and other operations. However, an accident occurred during the operation: Zhang Jinhua fell into a coma. Since then, they have been in a vegetative state.
According to the materials provided by Ming Huihong, Zhang Jinhua suddenly developed dyspnea at about 4:03 (August 5, 2008), which became shallow and slow, and the blood oxygen continued to drop, but it still remained unchanged at 4:06. Four minutes later, the clinic called the police. However, “Zhang Jinhua called 120 at 3:56 on August 5, 2008 because he was unconscious for one hour,” according to the summary of prehospital treatment records of Beijing Emergency Center. One hour ago, during the cosmetic surgery in the beauty clinic, the patient suddenly lost consciousness and stopped breathing. The dosage of epinephrine was unknown. After the diagnosis and treatment of ventilator assisted breathing, the patient’s condition did not improve. He called a car to transfer to the hospital, and the ambulance arrived at the scene at 4:22…. “
In addition, the Beijing Chaoyang Hospital “admission record at 10:00 on August 5, 2008” records: (Zhang Jinhua) 7 hours coma after cosmetic surgery (that is, coma around 3 am).
After forensic identification by Beijing Huaxia material evidence identification center, the total amount of swelling liquid used in the operation of minghuihong beauty clinic was about 4000ml, the total dose of lidocaine hydrochloride was 2.4G, and the total dose of epinephrine hydrochloride was 4mg. According to the appraisal agency, there is a direct causal relationship between the fault of minghuihong beauty clinic and the damage consequence. The fault participation rate is 100%. Zhang Jinhua is now a first-class disability and full nursing dependence.
At that time, Beijing Chaoyang District Health Bureau (now Beijing Chaoyang District Health Committee) found that the chief surgeon Wang Liangfa and anesthesiologist Yu qiguang’s lidocaine for anesthesia exceeded the limit of 6.0mg/kg in the Pharmacopoeia of the people’s Republic of China (2005 Edition), resulting in Zhang Jinhua’s first-class disability and complete nursing dependence.
At the end of December 2009, Chaoyang District Health Bureau of Beijing issued a decision on administrative punishment with the serial number of “chaoweiyifenzi (2009) No. 828”, which determined that Beijing minghuihong international medical beauty clinic had no anesthesia qualification, so its “medical institution occupation license” was revoked and 3000 yuan was fined. The following year, the Chaoyang District Health Bureau of Beijing issued two “decisions on administrative punishment” in succession, and the “doctor’s practice certificate” of chief surgeon Wang Liangfa and anesthesiologist Yu qiguang were revoked.
The chief surgeon was arrested for medical malpractice and accepted by the court
Wang huankai, Zhang Jinhua’s husband, believes that Wang Liangfa is suspected of medical malpractice and “must be investigated for criminal responsibility.” Wang huankai also told reporters that after Wang Liangfa’s “medical practice certificate” was revoked, he publicized his professional skills on major websites and carried out cosmetic surgery openly. “We reported Wang Liangfa’s” illegal medical practice “to the District Health Bureau twice in writing.”
In 2014, Wang huankai filed a civil lawsuit. Beijing Chaoyang District People’s court once entrusted Beijing Tongda Shoucheng forensic appraisal institute, a third-party appraisal organization, to make another appraisal. The result is consistent with the conclusion of Huaxia material evidence appraisal center: there is a direct causal relationship between Zhang Jinhua’s damage consequences and the medical behavior of the medical party, and the medical party (Minghui hongmeirong hospital) should bear all the responsibilities.
Although the clinic and relevant doctors were punished, Wang huankai believed that in this incident, the relevant responsible party had caused intentional injury, so many parties rushed to investigate the criminal responsibility of the other party, and withdrew the civil action in that year.
Zhang Jinhua’s former lawyer told Red Star news that in 2015, under the supervision of the procuratorate, Chaoyang District Health and Family Planning Commission of Beijing transferred the case to the public security organ, “the public security bureau put the criminal case on file in January 2016. In November 2016, Wang Liangfa, the chief surgeon, was detained in criminal custody. However, when the public security organ reported to the procuratorate for arrest, it was not approved. Therefore, Wang Liangfa was released on bail pending trial. “
61.6kg female businessman lost weight by liposuction and became a vegetable. She died after 10 years of coma. The chief surgeon was arrested
Shortly after the incident, anesthesiologist Yu qiguang died. Ni Weiwei, founder of minghuihong beauty clinic, once said in an interview with CCTV that Yu qiguang did commit suicide because of the incident. CCTV had previously reported a screenshot
At that time, the Chaoyang District Procuratorate of Beijing issued a “statement of reasons for not approving arrest” to the police, which said, “this case is lack of special” technical identification of medical malpractice “commissioned by the public security organ and key evidence.”
On October 6, 2018, Zhang Jinhua, who had been in a coma for 10 years, was finally declared dead due to hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. In order to find an explanation for his wife, Wang huankai constantly reflected the matter to the relevant departments. After a long wait, recently, the matter has finally made new progress.
“The chief surgeon Wang Liangfa was finally arrested in September this year on the charge of medical malpractice.” On December 27, 2020, Wang huankai told Red Star news that the people’s Court of Chaoyang District of Beijing contacted him not long ago and said that the case could be heard in January next year. “At that time, we will appeal for criminal incidental civil cases. In addition to compensation, we also hope that the court will impose heavier punishment according to law.”
On December 28, a staff member of the people’s Court of Chaoyang District of Beijing confirmed to the Red Star News reporter that the court had accepted the case and “there is no specific date for the hearing yet.”
Wang Liangxing told reporters that after 12 years of severe punishment for the victims, he hopes to avoid the injury of the news industry
