YouTube surgery video investigated
AP/Yahoo News, April 17, 2008
A YouTube video showing Philippine doctors laughing while removing an object from a patient may lead to charges against the surgeons and cost them their medical licenses. The government-run Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in the central city of Cebu, where the surgery took place, is conducting an investigation. Jose Sabili, MD, president of the Philippine Medical Association, said the group will conduct an investigation if a formal complaint is filed and doctors found violating medical ethics could be suspended or expelled from the association. The move would result in the suspension or termination of their state health insurance accreditation as well.
