A WOMAN who pretended to be a doctor at the Emergency Ward of the CWM Hospital has pleaded guilty in the Suva Magistrates Court to a count of personation.

The court heard that at 2.30am on November 22, Nanise Wati Pareti, 42, of Lami, approached three patients waiting to be seen by a doctor at the emergency unit. The complainant, Lanieta MacGoon, who had accompanied one of her staff members to the hospital, found Pareti's actions suspicious after a stethoscope, a computer mouse and a green shower nozzle that were in her possession fell to the floor as she slipped.

Pareti was also wearing a doctor's coat. She will be sentenced on December 17.
