When you go to the hospital for an operation, did you know your surgeon might also be performing a procedure on another patient, in a different operating room, over the same scheduled time period?

What a shock. No such thing as multi-tasking unless someone has two brains.

Noted. Thanks, Freya.
So, these doctors are getting double pay and the patients might be at risk? This cannot end well. I'm sure if there's already been any lawsuits regarding this, we haven't heard of them because they were more than likely settled......with the specifics kept secret per agreement.
