A shocking medical malpractice case was revealed recently, and the "shock" has nothing to do with a medical error or a terrible mistake that caused physical or medical harm to the patient. Instead, the allegations involved in this case revolve around disparaging and insulting comments that an anesthesiologist and numerous other medical professionals made to, and about, the patient while he was sedated for a colonoscopy.
So how did these insults become part of public record? Well, the patient brought a recorder with him to document the pre-op instructions the medical professionals were discussing. Before he could hit the "stop" button, he was sedated, and the recorder captured the entire procedure.
