palelizard: BumpInTheNight: I'm getting a vibe of "why are you wasting my time with court dates about my speeding tickets?  Can't you see I'm an important and busy person?"

On the other, if given the opportunity to do something like that which I knew was of no risk to the patient, I'd pull that move too just for the novelty of it.

I got the impression he wasn't concerned about the risk to the patient. "Yeah, yeah, no, there's another guy here, totes magotes cool" is not a healthy attitude towards the patient in the OR. If he wasn't necessary, he shouldn't have been in the room to begin with. If he was, he shouldn't have been on the phone.

If anything went wrong, there'd be one hell of a law suit, and it wouldn't be unreasonable for his malpractice insurance to deny his claim. "Oh, you chose to video chat while you were performing surgery, and your distracted condition led to an issue? Fark you, pay it yourself."


JFC man you just put me in the uncomfortable position of agreeing with an insurance representative

Gyrfalcon: Look, remote court is way more convenient than regular court; but it's not supposed to be THIS convenient!


I disagree partially.  Lawyers who aren't wearing Georgian drag aren't even real lawyers, just colonial hacks playing at baristry.

The poodle wigs add an undeniable air of impracticality and silliness. The formal full body robes facilitate no-pants relaxation. It keeps things... Discworldy.

Now, even incredibly minor surgery should be an all or nothing affair between surgeon and patient, but Zoom trials should mandate silly filters for a few test trials and compare satisfaction levels to pants-on ones.

It's possible that he's so well-practiced in his field, that the vagaries of answering basic questions during surgery would not be that much of a distraction. Then again, who knows.

But denying the claim will probably screw the guy bring the suit as much or more than the doctor, and it's malpractice insurance it's kinda there for when a doctor does something dumb. It would be like a car insurance denying coverage because someone was driving drunk.
