What These Doctors Did During a Man's Surgery Will SHOCK You
Undergoing a medical procedure is scary enough, but one Virginia man encountered an even more disturbing side effect—anger—after he realized his phone's voice recorder was accidentally left on during his surgery.
While he was sedated, one of the doctors, Tiffany Ingham, along with other physicians and , began to mock him, thinking that what they said wouldn't come back to bite them in the butt. In the recording, you can hear them calling their patient a "wuss" and a "retard," according to aWashington Postreport.
The harassment continued with harsh name-calling and laughing at his state of health. "After five minutes of talking to you in pre-op, I wanted to punch you in the face," Dr. Ingham said to the patient.
His medical team even planned to avoid him after surgery, with Dr. Ingham suggesting that the gastroenterologist escape a post-operation conversation with the "annoying" man by faking an emergency summons.
Obviously irate, as any patient would be after hearing such awful things come out of doctors' mouths while they were operating, the Virginia man took his case to court. He was pressing for .75 million in punitive damages, but settled with 0,000 after the jury decided to meet him in the middle.
A juror in the case, Farid Khairzada, told the Post that there was a conflict between one juror who wanted to grant him more money and another who felt he didn't deserve to win any money at all.
"We finally came to a conclusion that we have to give him something, just to make sure that this doesn't happen again," Khairzada said.
While 0,000 is a hefty sum to walk away with, we imagine no money will ever make this man forget how cruel people can be sometimes.
