    Do i Amuse You ?

    Patient Sues after Anesthesiologist Puts Moustache, Tear Stickers on Her Face During Surgery
    When is a prank a crime ? I think they may have went a little too far.

    I don't think suing is out of line here.

    You go in for surgery, the doctor and the nurse paint up your face while you are unconscious, post the picture on Facebook. We should not expect a patient to say "Hey, that was stupid, but I'm over it."

    1) Medical procedures are confidential. Violation of confidentiality. 2) Putting stuff on peoples faces without their consent - unwanted touching - battery. 3) Posting a picture of the person when they are unconscious and painted up - infliction of emotional distress.....

    This is not like a couple of college kids painting up a face of a passed out drunk buddy. These are medical professional in whom a person must absolutely trust.

    I don't know if I'd sue initially, but if the doctor and nurse weren't immediately terminated, then yes, I'd sue to make it happen or make the hospital pay for defending such idiots.

    Still disagree though you bring up good points.(As always) She was their coworker for many years. In this situation would I sue to get my coworkers fired? Probably not. Would I leave any doubt in their minds about how felt about their shenanigans? Definitely not!

    In a world of frivilous lawsuits, this is one that is justified and should have been filed. There are few relationships between customer and vendor that are more important, as invasive, or as potentially damaging, as that between surgeon and patient. In that scenario, ANY deviation from accepted norms simply cannot be allowed or condoned. It immediately destroys the presumption of professionalism that is vital to the relationship and calls into question the overall competency of the actors. It just can't be allowed or condoned.

    Yes, this woman should have filed and should prevail.

    If they did that to me, I'd be laughing my arse off. Posting it on Facebook was a little over-the-top, but I'm sure I'd get over it. "Emotional distress"??? Get over it and grow up. Anyone who's that fragile is going to go through life "emotionally distressed" over something or other anyway.

    This is a money grub, plain & simple.

    Justifiable lawsuit in my book. Few things in this world are private anymore, a hospital procedure had better be one of them! If we're supposed to just "get over it", than what's to stop anyone from doing as they please when someone is in a sedated and vulnerable position. There needs to be consequences for that in my opinion.

    In the olden days the victim would have just chosen the time and place, walked up to the offender and popped them in the nose or mouth and walked away.

    In the medical field the very first rule is Do No Harm.

    Before I edited my post here I had forgotten that rule. I've had some medical training in the past and semi recently but it's not something I practice everyday.

    He/She should be sued, what else could have been done, while she could not defend herself. Respect, was not here for sure.
    When you in-trust a health care PROFESSINAL, This or anything else, that could be a real crime. I am sure anyone here would NOT be happy, especially
    If it was your wife mother or child. You would be fuming.

    The grown up side (if there is one) says that Doctors are supposed to be professional and should act professional.

    I agree with you here buddy but unfortunately those days are long gone. I'm sticking with my original opinion because I dang sure wouldn't want my wife or kids photographed in a hospital without their consent and find it posted on a social media site. If that "punch in the mouth" equates to a " punch in the wallet" in today's world, then that's what needs to be done.

    We have become the United States of the Offended. Some greedy people (lawyers included), have discovered an easy way to make money with frivolous lawsuits. Juries seem to most always favor the plaintiffs. It's a way of "sticking it to the man". This act was in poor taste, but no harm came to anyone. It was not done maliciously. Think about it.

    I work in the medical field and that was a gross abuse of HIPPA. Those "professionals" knew the rules and and broke them. A lawsuit is not out of line in this situation. I would say its a duty to proceed with a lawsuit else you embolden more shamefull, disrespectfull behavior.

    California has laws on the book regarding HIPPA. Each of those involved are liabile for a 250,000 fine on top of civil action. There careers are over. Maybe they can practice medicine in Guatamala.
