COLONOSCOPY PATIENT SUES DOCTOR WHO MOCKED HIM DURING SEDATION

A patient in Virginia found that he had a very good reason to file a medical malpractice lawsuit when he played back a recording that took place during his colonoscopy. He had turned on the recording device while being given instructions, so he wouldn't forget them. He left the device on, simply because he didn't think about turning it off. Since it recorded all throughout the procedure, everything that the anesthesiologist and others in the room said was saved for him to listen to at a later date. When he listened to it, he found that the surgical team had insulted and mocked him during his entire procedure.
