(SMH) — A teenage boy has been impersonating doctors at hospitals, wearing scrubs and a stethoscope and reading patient notes.

The state health authority in South Australia has warned staff about the “bogus clinician” who “walks around with a clipboard” after numerous sightings. The teenager has been compared to Frank Abagnale, who posed as a doctor and a pilot and inspired the film Catch Me If You Can.

He walks around with a clipboard and just talks to people.

The youth, believed to be 16, has been seen on wards at the Royal Adelaide Hospital wearing a name badge and uniform, and at Flinders Medical Centre, wearing an official lanyard and a stethoscope. He is reportedly confident and well-versed in medical language and terminology.
