The Taichung City Government is to cite a nurse at Taichung Hospital on International Nurses Day on Friday for her integrity because she turned over nearly NT$3 million (US$96,000) left by a deceased patient on his bed to hospital management late last month. The nurse, surnamed Liang, tended to the 57-year-old patient who had been admitted on April 21 for treatment of polyneuropathy and diabetes. In the five days that followed, Liang noticed that the patient had held an old plastic bag and never let it out of his sight. When the man died on April 25, Liang checked his belongings and found that the bag contained NT$2.8 million in cash, plus a passbook showing a NT$150,000 deposit in the account -- all wrapped in newspaper and a sweater.
