I'd be afraid to see what they would leave inside of people along with keys and gauze.

The Level 1 trauma hospital where I work has forbidden anyone in the ED or OR to take pictures or video of anything that is not going to be officially entered into the medical record, after the legal department found that pictures of patients were being shared (pics of people involved in spectacular car accidents that made the news, knives sticking out of limbs or chests, weird/funny/disgusting tattoos, etc.)  If it is found that you obtained an unauthorized image, you're fired, even if the patient cannot be identified in the picture/video, and even if you didn't share or publish the picture/video.

Every large hospital has a legal department, and I'd guess they feel the same way.

TL;DR

There's already cameras incorporated into OR lights. Circulating nurses can phone up people and put them on speakerphone. Pictures can be easily taken with the OR camera system and easily incorporated into the medical record, electronic or otherwise. Rooms are also equipped with at least one computer with a large screen or even multiple large screen that a surgeon or circulator nurse can use to pull up images and see them during the surgery.

I fail to see how google glass does any of these jobs more efficiently than the equipment and personel that's already there, and would have to continue to be there regardless of whether or not the surgeon was wearing google glass. It's an idiotic fad, and that's putting it nicely.

then again, orthopedic surgeons aren't known for being that smart. They just scored well on a test once.

What about the origins of things that go into the Ass Box?

So... Use while driving bad, use while performing surgery good?
