Zero tolerance for hospital staff who collude with scalpers

A VIDEO showing a nurse in a hospital in Nanjing, East China's Jiangsu province, angrily rebuking a woman who tried to hoodwink patients to go to other small, profit-seeking hospitals went viral on the internet recently. Beijing Youth Daily comments:

Hospital scalpers are not a new phenomena. They take advantage of patients' huge demand for good medical resources and lack of knowledge about the market to make profits. The public security and public health departments have always pledged "zero tolerance" toward such activities, which hurt patients' interests, and have launched many rounds of campaigns against the scalpers. Yet those who seek to decoy patients often return to the hospitals once the campaigns end.

A tricky point is how to define scalpers' behavior according to law.
