A fake Spanish doctor spent five months working in an emergency room despite not having any medical training, El Pais newspaper reported Wednesday.
The "doctor" was given a job in the hospital in the eastern city of Valencia last year after claiming a bogus medical degree.
Staff and patients did not make any complaints about the fake doctor's performance during the five-month period, and "nobody suspected a thing," a hospital source said.
The fraud was discovered when the human resources department of another hospital conducted a background check and had suspicions about the degree certificate.
The woman, who immediately quit and disappeared, faces charges of intrusion and fraud.
