World Plastic surgeon turns up for Zoom court hearing while in the middle of operating on a patient
California Professor Put on Leave After Confronting Hard-of-Hearing Student in Zoom Call
"I am saddened and outraged beyond words that any of our students should either be or feel disrespected by any of our employees," said Oxnard College's president on Friday."Why didn't you answer all the times I spoke to you, then? You know, thank you. Thank you," the Oxnard College professor, Michael Abram, says in the video to the student, whom he refers to as Ms. Salazar. "Why don't we talk sometimes—why don't you email me? We'll set up a live Zoom and we're going to have some real communication at some point and time. Maybe you can have your counselor join us? Okay? Do you hear me? Okay, wonderful, do that.
A Californian plastic surgeon is being investigated after he attended a virtual court hearing while operating on a patient.
Dr Scott Green reportedly turned up for the video conference - which concerned a traffic violation - while in an operating room and wearing surgical scrubs.
According to the Sacramento Bee, beeps of medical machinery could be heard during the Zoom call, and the patient's procedure was taking place just out of view.
A courtroom clerk asked Dr Green: "Are you available for trial? It kind of looks like you're in an operating room."
Fact Check: Did Representative Maxine Waters Ask About Refunds For Money Lost on Stocks?
On February 18, the House Committee on Financial Services held a hearing on the events surrounding the GameStop trading frenzy that took place in late January. The hearing was led by Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), chair of the Financial Services Committee. © Chip Somodevilla/Getty Democratic California Representative Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, has pledged to "convene a hearing to examine the recent activity around GameStop" as a "first step in reining in ... abusive practices," like short-selling a way to make money off of stocks that fail.
The doctor confirmed that he was in the middle of surgery, but urged the court to proceed.
Dr Green appeared to continue working with his head down while he waited for Thursday's trial to begin.
But when the judge entered the chamber, he said he was reluctant to proceed over concerns for the patient's welfare.
The doctor appeared to dismiss these concerns, replying: "I have another surgeon right here who's doing the surgery with me, so I can stand here and allow them to do the surgery also."
But the judge decided to postpone the hearing because it wasn't appropriate to conduct a trial under the circumstances - telling Dr Green he would rather set a new date.
The doctor apologised, but the judge interrupted him and said: "We want to keep people healthy, we want to keep them alive. That's important."
The Medical Board of California says it is looking into the incident, and expects surgeons to follow the standard of care when treating their patients.
