No More Hockey Chat for B.C. Surgeons during Surgery
No more hockey chatter and other unrelated banter in the operating room will be allowed to B. C. surgeons now onwards as British Columbia medical officials have warned the surgeons to stop the hockey chit-chat in operating rooms, which could upset patients.
The National Hockey League is just around the corner. And thus the advisory has been issued by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B. C. to the 11,000 doctors of the province reminding them talking only about things related to the surgical task are allowed in the operating room.
Dr. Heidi Otter, Registrar of the province's College of Physicians and Surgeons said that they have issued this advice post listening to a complaint of the patient, who said that his surgeon was discussing a hockey game with nurses while he was operating his eye. Dr. Otter has further marked that a reminder has been included in the quarterly report, which was posted on the licensing body's website last December.
"In a patient-centred system, you first consider the patient. Some patients may want to hear their surgeon announce what is happening and other patients may not want to hear a word," she said.
