Unlicensed drugs and invasive medical procedures have been used on Israeli elderly patients as well as mentally challenged individuals without their
consent according to the government watchdog reports.
Patients in Israeli hospitals, among them the elderly, children and the mentally infirm, have been used as guinea pigs in medical experiments without
permission from their legal guardians, according to the country's main government watchdog.
Geriatric patients had their fingers inked to give fingerprints authorising the tests even though they suffered from senile dementia and would not
have known what they were doing.
Some children had their eardrums deliberately pierced so that a drug, not approved for medical use anywhere else in the world, could be applied. Such
tests needed approval but the hospital did not apply to the ministry.

What's ironic is that these test done in Israel only reflect some of the testing that was malicious medical practices that were administered in
Auschwitz Nazi Camps decades ago. In some cases, the hospital granted insurance to the researchers but not their patients. Bizarre.
