A Vienna man went to a doctor’s office for a typical colonoscopy and in an attempt to secure the doctors post procedure instructions he switched on record on his cell phone, but what he heard on the ride home was nothing short of shameful. 

His smartphone captured conversation throughout the entire procedure where the surgical team mocked and insulted the sedated man. 

In addition to their verbal abuse the doctors talked about avoiding the man after he awoke from his colonoscopy, one doctor instructed an assistant to lie to the man and one person wrote hemorrhoids on his chart – a false statement. 

The anesthesiologist Tiffany M. Ingham, 42,   said to the unconscious man, “I wanted to punch you in the face and man you up a little bit.” 

The assistant mentioned the man had a rash, the abusive anesthesiologist warned her not to touch it and said that she might get, “some syphilis on your arm or something,” she continued, “It’s probably tuberculosis in the penis, so you’ll be all right.”

The nasty recording went on and on with abusive language and angry sentiment from the people the patient trusted and paid to help him while he was lying there helpless and unconscious. 

The ray of light in the whole mess is the man sued the anesthesiologist and her practice along with the doctor who conducted the surgery to pay him $500, 000.  The man’s name was not included in the court documents – he wanted to protect his privacy.   The jury also awarded the man an additional $200,000 in punitive damages, $200,000 for medical malpractice and $100,000 for defamation. 

Should medical procedures be videotaped to maintain integrity?

According to the Washington post, the doctors argued that the Vienna man did not suffer any physical injury or miss any days of work. The man’s complaint said that he was “verbally brutalized” and suffered anxiety, embarrassment and loss of sleep for several months.

Ingham has since moved to Tavares, Florida to spread the love there.
