Beware Of Doctors & Doctors Beware



Is this a rude exception or the norm?

Anesthesiologist Trashes Sedated Patient — And It Ends Up Costing Her

Gosh, I had an endoscopic procedure last year... I wonder what they said about me?

Once, after a colonoscopy, my doc said I told dirty jokes while I was under.
To this DAY, I'm not sure if they tell most people that or he was just teasing :-)
Me? Tell a dirty joke? naaaa heh heh
The stuff said about that guy was terrible, wasn't it? I wonder if that anesthesiologist, after all her training and work, will work again.

I always suspected they were talking about me but that is the sort of ego I have.

I think he might have been teasing you. They're more likely to say things than the person who is under the effect of a powerful anesthetic such as propofol.

The stuff the anesthesiologist said was rude, but hardly the worst that has been said under the circumstances. Let's face it, the only reason she's in trouble is because the rest of the world heard her and not just her colleagues who are used to it. I think it's standard 'operating' procedure.

Jan: Yes, the medical professionals ARE talking about you and so are the Asians at the local beauty salon ;)

No, really. I think most people would be shocked to know how much the people in the medical profession are talking about them behind their backs. Shocked, I tell you!

It can depend on the professionals. Yes, many of them will trash talk during procedures. Some will not, and usually it's the doctor performing the procedure who sets the tone. If s/he doesn't tolerate that stuff (and i know a few who don't), it's not done when that doctor is in charge.

If all such procedures were recorded, such nastiness would come to an end.

I don't care. What I don't hear is fine with me. Just get it done. I just had two procedures a couple weeks ago. Whatever. I do like that this bit them in the behind though. Yes indeed.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Messymimi: I do believe there are some medical professionals out there that don't engage in this kind of behavior, but I think they're few and far between.

If all such procedures were recorded, it would certainly put an end to this behavior.

Sandee: I agree. I assume they're going to talk about me. All I ask is that there is no medical malpractice involved and they all do their jobs proficiently. As Messymimi commented, maybe it's time to record all these procedures. Now that the proverbial genie is out of the lamp, many people are going to wring their hands over this.

I've had three of them and I really didn't care what they were talking about when the doctor was you know what. I was just happy that it was done and the results were negative. My doctor was smiling because he so happy to inform me that everything was great. See ya.

Cube - I'm sure they had nothing but good to say against you!

They should not be talking about patients in a negative way.

Paul Pietrangelo: I'm with you. I don't care what they talk about either.

Sue Hanes: Lol. I'm sure they could find something negative to say about me. They're human, too. As I said before, I don't care that they talk about patients as long as they do their jobs.

If you go into an average American hospital, better have someone with you 24/7. Often you're are a procedure and cash-cow, not a person.

Any wonder that iatrogenic injury (inadvertently introduced by a medical procedure) is one of the top 10 causes of death in the US these days?

A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000
B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000
C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171 (or 1 per 6 MDs)

Wish it wasn't so.
