I was seriously asked by one of the attendings to text pictures of wounds during rounds to his cell phone
. Needless to say I said "No, but you're more than welcome to come on fridays when we do rounds with the specialist if you'd like to see for yourself how they're healing." My facility does not photograph wounds during weekly measurements/assessments with the wound specialist and there isn't a chance in you know where that I'm going to take a picture of a wound with my personal cell phone to send to the MD or anyone else. I told my DON/Admin about this and they will be taking care of the situation. When I confronted the MD about the request with the statement "why did you ask me to do something you knew illegal?" He stated a lot of the MD's at the "big hospital" do it. I'd be ****** if someone took a picture of a wound on my rear and sent it around to anyone/everyone. Has anyone else heard of doing this? Texting pictures.
