My partner and I were gossiping about lab stuff the other day when another came in.
Dr. Woods: "Did you see who got their license revoked?"
He had brought in a copy of the State Medical Board newsletter. This was a guy we all new and liked. We hemmed and hawed and mourned and knew of his troubles but wondered about the straw that broke the camel's back. As I was looking at all the names on the list I noticed one that I had read about in the news last week. He had an Emergency Order of Suspension.
Me: "Hey, did you hear about this one?"
Me: "A patient heard a click while he was examining her (an OB) and worried he had taken a picture of her vagina. She went to local officials with her concerns. They investigated. Turns out he had a ton of vagina pics on his phone."
They were shocked. Dr. Woods wondered: "Um, maybe boobs? Or a whole naked woman reclining? But just an iphone pic of that one part? Really?"
We all wondered aloud whose boat that might float. Maybe he did it for the thrill, and the pic was a treasure of his stealth.
Me: "Especially after kids. Vaginal delivery redistributes anatomy. Not necessarily in an aesthetically pleasing way. Well, everyone has individual taste. But it's not like it used to be, that's for sure."
