Default Swedish nurse posts photo's taken during surgery on Facebook

Nurse posts brain surgery pictures on Facebook

A nurse posted photos of herself clutching a lump of human flesh beside a patient having a brain operation for her Facebook page.

Her job at a hospital in Stockholm is now at risk after she put 14 photos from a brain surgery and a back operation to her account on the popular social networking site.
One showed the operating assistant holding indeterminate parts of the patient's body.
The chief of neurosurgery at Karolinska University Hospital, Mikael Svensson, said the incident was "deeply unfortunate".
"It violates basic ethical codes," he said.
Cameras are banned from operating theatres unless they are intended as teaching aids for students. It appears that the nurse, who is unnamed for legal reasons, used her mobile phone.
The patients could not be identified from the photos, which have now been deleted from her internet page, but staff at the hospital have had an emergency meeting to remind them about patient privacy.
The woman, who has been suspended, is said to be "devastated" by her actions. It seems she wanted to impress her friends with her high powered job.
The hospital has begun an inquiry and says it is still considering whether to report the nurse to the police or dismiss her.

Good heavens this is probably one of the stoooopidest things I have read in a long long time.

The cell phone I have makes a noise if I take a photo with it and did not any one there see her do this?

Stwwwange but so stooopid.

Ya reap what ya sow. :rolleyes:

Look, if you are a nurse, or anyone who works in the health profession, from a cleaner to a consultant, you know not to talk about the people you care for in hospital. Let alone take photos of them and post them without permission for the whole world to see!

If she took pictures with her cell phone, didn't that effectively contaminate the entire place? Or did she put the cell through the autoclave first?
