A chiropodist who kicked a police officer and swore at an 81-year-old patient was found guilty of professional misconduct today. Christine Johnson, aged 71 at the time, told the older woman youre not leaving my f****** clinic when she suggested arranging her appointment for another day. A conduct and competence committee of the Health Professions Council (HPC) heard Johnsons attitude changed during the appointment in Rhyl, North Wales, in March last year. She became abusive after a young man put his head around the door of the room to talk about a washing machine, the hearing in Cardiff was told. Chairman Ian Crookhall said she used extremely inappropriate and abusive language, which upset her (the patient). She said, I dont care about your f****** car and I dont care if you get a f****** ticket, told her she could not leave because the clinic door was locked and said I dont care about your f****** grandson when the woman said she should leave to pick up her grandson. Mr Crookhall said there was no misconduct before Johnsons attitude changed towards the woman, who was having her first appointment with the chiropodist. She also showed the woman a tray full of nail clippings, threw them in the bin and put the tray under her feet without cleaning it, but this did not amount to misconduct, the panel ruled. It found her fitness to practise was impaired and gave Johnson, who was not at the hearing, a three-year caution order. She was also cautioned for another occasion when police were called to a domestic incident at her home in June last year [read] after she had been out drinking.

Chiropodist who swore at patient guilty of misconduct
Meet Dharminder Kumar Wadhera, a Chiropodist. Though the dictionary defines Podiatry as another name for Chiropody, the two are different as chiropody cures feet problems and does minor surgery without bleeding or pain. Though the art of http://bayviewwellness.com/contact/ chiropody was introduced in India by British it was only Bata Shoes who decided to take further the legacy. Dharminder then an employee of Bata was sent to the companys training institute in Kolkata to learn the art. He says that the knowledge of chiropody is rendered through guru-shishya parampara, I used to assist R R Sharma and V K Arora at the original outlet in Connaught Place and when they retired, I went for training to Kolkata in 2000 and acquired the skill of chiropody. Dharminder explains that his work requires a lot of skill and patience as he deftly cuts a nail like an artisan who carves a jewel and therefore calls it scientific pedicure which is different from cosmetic pedicure available at beauty parlours. But what does he do? A chiropodist treats corns, callouses and warts, indulges in diabetic footcare; nail care; foot surgery and almost all the problems of the feet area below the ankle. And all this sans any pain! A boon for those suffering from various problems of the feet. He has treated a number of people in his two decade old career. But the man believes in serving society and does not want to quit despite it being not a very lucrative job. He lists amongst his clients Kiran Bedi, Shabana Azmi, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot, Rajya Sabha MP, Ram Vilas Paswan and former Speaker Lok Sabha Somnath Chatterjee to name just a few. Yet, his hi-profile clientele does not mean an increase in fees. Sharing Kiran Bedis case Dharminder recollects, When she became the first lady police officer, the shoes given to her along with uniform caused corns which used to give a lot of pain. After a successful treatment, she was extremely happy. The chiropodist shares the instance of Shabana Azmi, Due to high heels, Shabana ji developed pain which was cured. Likewise, there are several incidents that this humble professional remembers.

Chiropodist experience shows the way to a professional ‘nothing’ service
before carrying out a thorough examination of my feet (even the one without said complaint). He confirmed it was a verruca and explained how notoriously difficult verrucas are to treat, adding that, depending on ones age, they can online take literally years to eradicate. But, he said, a lot of people do not get anywhere with the treatments available at the local pharmacy. In fact, acid was the best treatment but he was not going to prescribe that for me. I was reassured, better informed and came away confident that do nothing was a reasonable course of action. I had taken advice from a professional who knew what he was talking about and he had not tried to sell me anything. His advice was simply do nothing. Did he bill me? Yes, of course. He is a professional and he delivered a professional service. So in answer to Nicks question: yes, of course you can charge a client when your advice is do nothing as long as doing nothing is good advice based on your experience, skills, qualifications and expertise. Why? Because that advice is valuable and worth something to your client. Product is not the only outcome of advice; advice is valuable on its own.
