A handful of doctors - including the heads of Kwong Wah and United Christian hospitals and three intensive care specialists - were praised by name for their work in fighting the Sars outbreak. The special committee's report twice commended Luk Che-chung, chief executive of Kwong Wah, which admitted the Sars index patient from the mainland in February last year. The report complimented his quick response in isolating the index patient and his sister and brother-in-law, who were all admitted to Kwong Wah Hospital. It also praised his readiness to work at Princess Margaret Hospital after it was designated the Sars hospital in late March. Also praised was Cheung King-on, consultant of Caritas Medical Centre's intensive care unit (ICU), who temporarily took charge of Princess Margaret's intensive care unit after many of its medical workers fell ill. He brought with him four ICU nurses from his hospital. Another doctor praised was Tom Buckley, consultant and specialist in intensive care from the Prince of Wales Hospital, who was put in charge of infection control and clinical management of Princess Margaret's ICU. At Kwong Wah, Watt Chi-leung, director of the hospital's intensive care unit, was also commended for his alertness. The committee said his vigilance helped prevent Kwong Wah health-care workers from being infected by the deadly disease. Dr Watt instructed nurses to prepare an isolation room for the index patient and to wear protective masks, gloves and gowns when attending the patient. United Christian Hospital chief executive Tse Chun-yan was singled out for his leadership in dealing with the crisis effectively. The hospital took in most of the patients from Amoy Gardens. The report also praised health-care workers as a group at Tai Po, Prince of Wales and United Christian hospitals.
