When people hear the term "malpractice," most automatically envision grave injuries or even death. However, a shocking story shows that people can be harmed without experiencing bodily injury. The story centers on a male patient who inadvertently recorded the events that transpired during his colonoscopy procedure. The results are both shocking and a gross display of lack of professionalism.
The patient reportedly merely meant to record the doctor's post-procedure instructions, but what he captured was a slew of insults and mockery instead. Some of the derogatory comments he recorded include calling the patient a derogatory word for a mentally-challenged person, expressing a desire to punch him in the face, saying a rash on the patient was syphilis and stating he had "tuberculosis of the penis."
