This story is long and interesting, see link above.



Anesthesiologist trashes sedated patient — and it ends up costing her

These audio clips are excerpts from conversations between a gastroenterologist, an anesthesiologist and a medical assistant during a colonoscopy. This was entered as evidence in a lawsuit filed by the patient for defamation and medical malpractice. (The Washington Post)

I read about this yesterday. I would take them to court if it were me, also.

@edgarblythe,
It's so very much against my experience with good doctors, either as a patient or co worker that it's incredible for me to read. Not that doctors don't have plenty of sardonic humor, but this is cruelty on parade, even if he didn't have it recorded and heard it.
