Malpractice, Gangnam Style

One of “hundreds” of the cosmetic surgery clinics in the Gangnam district of Seoul, South Korea, is being investigated after staff members posted photos of a birthday party online. The birthday party was held in the operating theater, in front of an apparently unconscious patient on the operating table. In one photo, staff can be seen playing with a breast implant; another shows the birthday boy, apparently a doctor, blowing out the candles on his cake, and a third shows everyone eating hamburgers. “Our officials are investigating the clinic to see if there was any violation of medical laws,” said a health department spokeswoman. “They may look into whether such behavior damaged the reputation of medical practitioners.” (RC/AFP) ...Anyone who saw the pictures could answer: yes.
