    To me the point is that this nurse took totally inapropriate advantage of a patient who had been rendered vulnerable by sedation. One of the many roles of the nurse is to protect the patient from just this sort of thing. The picture itself may be meaningless, but the absolute lack of respect and care for the vulnerable individual is not.

    Impress her friends? Is she serious?! My goodness, how old do you have to be before you stop trying to impress your friends? Guess her friends are quite impressed by her stupidity also!

    men who go around with their cameras low enough to take pictures of women's it OK since no one will be able to identify whose butt it is that is posted on the perverted site?....or do we as women have a right to walk down the street wearing a skirt without worrying that someone will invade our privacy by taking a quick pic and posting it online.
    That's a good point, I didn't think of it like that.

    That was never a stated issue. I have observed 2 or 3 surgeries in my career. Never was I required to "scrub in". I was far enough that if I wanted to take pics with a non sterile camera, i could have.

    So I will ask again. What tangible harm was caused to that specific patient by posting non identifying pictures of her brain on line?
    On a camera phone? Be real.

    I've been in numerous surgeries as an observer as well and have NEVER been able to linger over the open body cavity without being scrubbed in.

    This nurse is a moron. You're supposed to be focusing on the patient and the surgery when you're an OR nurse, not playing with your phone, snapping photos. No sympathy for her, not even a little bit.
