Violence between patients, their families and medical personnel have become a problem throughout China as the country continues to modernize its medical treatment facilities. Many Chinese people have high expectations of doctors and are unfamiliar with many medical practices.

Li Xiao's father recently spent five days in the hospital and suddenly passed away. Because of an unsatisfactory explanation by the hospital, Li Xiao attacked the doctors and blinded one doctor in his left eye. We interviewed the hospital and the patient's family about this incident.
Lǐxiǎo de fùqīn niánlíng dà le ,yòu ài hējiǔ ,shēntǐ bǐjiào chà 。tā tūrán qùshì ,wǒmen yě hěn nánshòu ,dàn yīshēng yǐjīng jìnlì le 。
Li Xiao's father was old. He also loved to drink and his health wasn't very good. We're also very upset that he died suddenly, but the doctors had already done everything they could.
Lǐxiǎo de fùqīn yǐqián shēntǐ yīzhí hěn hǎo 。tūrán qùshì ,yīyuàn méiyǒu shuō qīngchu yuányīn ,zhè ràng wǒmen zěnme jiēshòu 。Lǐxiǎo zhè cái dǎ le yīshēng ,tā yě hěn hòuhuǐ 。
Li Xiao's father's health was fine before. The hospital never gave a clear reason for why he died suddenly. How can we accept this? Li Xiao really regrets that this caused him to attack the doctors.

This isn't the first time that this kind of dispute between doctors and patients has happened. We interviewed the Director of the Public Health Bureau and he was also deeply saddened.
