Florida doctors have some explanation to give following reports that they have been rejecting obese pregnant patients fearing pregnancy related complications and potential legal hassles that might follow.
Some doctors have also set a low cut-off limit of 90 kg weight, beyond which they refuse healthcare services to pregnant women.
AdvertisementA poll revealed that out of 105 doctors, nearly 15 have admitted to rejecting obese patients.
Though this is against ethics of medical practice, some doctors seem to go the extra mile to safeguard themselves and keep their records spotless.
