For real? The #surgeryselfie

This is so, so wrong on so many levels. A report has surfaced (with a pic as proof) that shows Chinese doctors and nurses decked in scrubs, posing with reportedly unconscious patients on the operating table.

Of course there was a backlash with some saying, “They are not acting professionally at all. They are treating the patients’ suffering as a joke.”

Here is what is even crazier. The doctors have supporters. “Doctors are humans too, said a reader of the microblogging Sina Weibo, where the pic first appeared.  I don’t think there is anything wrong with them wanting to take a photo to celebrate after a long and successful surgery. “

For the record – we don’t allow cell phones in our Operating Room – ever.
