This was from today over at the Happy Hospitalist blog and yes it’s a good one and also see where Dr. Wes, a well known blogging cardiologist “tweeted” the story.  Both Happy and Dr. Wes are excellent blogs to read and I follow both.  Back on track, where’s the responsibility here? I guess some folks don’t give any thought to their medical conditions and this guy even went an extra mile. 

I think maybe he should have considered one of those FDA approved male vibrators?  Maybe if his doctor would have prescribed on of those vibrators  he might have been off the hook?  Well if that would stand to be the case then the company might stand to see a huge increase in sales. 
You can read the full article at the link at the Happy blog for the rest of his comments.  Gee, why do we have a hard time getting folks to be doctors today?  Anyway, any cardiologists reading here, listen up and maybe think about prescribing one of  those vibrators if it might help keep yourself documented and in the clear, after all it is FDA approved:)

Now on a serious note, here’s what it’s like when a doctor gets sued and yes Dr. Wes was here too for the screening of this documentary and it’s worth watching this trailer.  There’s no pay for all the legal time and court time as you will hear in this trailer.  I agree with Happy on this one, ridiculous as we all have to have a little common sense and responsibility.  BD

“The Vanishing Oath” Documentary – One MD Talks About the Process of Being Sued - The Diminishing Doctor-Patient Relationship


Vanishing Oath–When a doctor gets sued



Yes folks, it really happened.   William Martinez died  in 2009 while having sex in a threesome (no wife involved).  Unfortunately for cardiologist Dr Sreeni Gangasani, the jury awarded the man's estate a three million dollar judgement against the cardiologist for failing to tell the man not the exert himself before a scheduled stress test was performed.  Mr Martinez had  seen the cardiologist the week before with arm pain.

This was reported at the American College of Cardiology in Atlanta in 2010 as a  live Tweeting  event by Dr Wes for Sex, The Heart and Erectile Dysfunction.

I am waiting for the day that a jury provides monetary judgment against an internist or cardiologist for  sudden death for a patient who was just thinking about a threesome.  I'm waiting for the day that a hospital patient dies while having sex in the hospital and the hospitalist gets sued and loses for failing to tell the patient on admission not to have sex in the hospital.  Or perhaps the next biggest wave of lawsuits should be against orthopedic surgeons who's post operative hip and knee patients get complications when they  aren't consulted on the correct way to have sex after joint replacement surgery
