Hospital Suspends Surgeons For Taking Selfies During Surgery (Photos)


A group of surgical staff were suspended for taking selfies mid-operation and posting them on social media.
The team, including the surgeon, anaesthesiologist, two surgical assistants and a surgical nurse, work at the Hospital San Jose de Capilla del Senor, in the district of Exaltacion de la Cruz in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires.
The images were taken during an operation and posted on the social media account of one of the surgeons, Lorena Olguin, who works in the gastroenterology area of the hospital.
The photos show the medical team looking at the camera with their surgical masks and gowns on. One of them shows three of them standing over the patient lying on the operating table, and another with the whole team showing the equipment used in the surgery and bits of gauze with blood on it.
The hospital authorities say they have suspended all of those shown in the photo because they consider it irresponsible behaviour.
