Dr. Kenneth Kwong Si-san, former lecturer at CUHK, stated on Feb 17 on Facebook that possibly the first patient in Hong Kong to be diagnosed with tear gas-caused lung damage had signed DNR, and hoped to be treated by Professor David SC HUI of the Department of Medicine and Therapeutics in CUHK.

Kwong stated that the patient signed up to be a “silent mentor”, a body donation scheme for anatomical examination in relation to teaching and research. As patients suffered from tear gas-related diseases had always been treated by Professor Hui, he wishes Hui and his team at Prince Wales Hospital would tend to the patient who now currently resides in Tuen Mun Hospital.

Kwong also quoted the patient, who expressed his wish to receive palliative care with dignity, become a “slient mentor”, and be treated post mortem by Pasu Ng Kwai-lun, embalmer of “slient mentors” at CUHK.
