You often don't have a choice to find another doctor. You are assigned a doctor and there are no patient advocates or administrators to help you. Switching doctors would be a major problem of losing face. You probably don't have a choice to switch hospitals since you probably had to pay a large cash deposit to be admitted. And for "medical reasons" they will fight tooth and nail to keep you from transferring to another hospital. I saw this several times in Beijing, with ER doctors huddling in the back room playing games on the computer. If you find yourself in this situation, I recommend first finding another hospital that will admit you, then arranging the ambulance for transport, meanwhile continue to insist that you will transfer hospitals, and talk to every staff member to find out who will authorize the transfer. Last time we needed to transfer, after three hours or arguing the doctor finally capitulated after I agreed to use their ambulance service for the transport. It was only about 70 RMB. I think he was more annoyed that I kept walking into their staff room while they were trying to play online games.
