The plastic surgeon in Sacramento appeared in his Zoom traffic court trial during the operation on the patient.
The incident is the latest ordinary court procedure, with interesting changes in the age of coronavirus, video conferencing, and remote work.
A few weeks after a viral video of a Texas lawyer unable to turn off the kitten filter during a Zoom court appearance, Dr. Scott Green appeared in a virtual court on Thursday from an operating room wearing scrubs and surgical masks.
Despite the hesitation of the court clerk, Green insisted that they continue the trial.
“Sir. Green. Hello. Can you try it?”
“I am, sir. I am in the operating room. Yes, I can stand trial. Go ahead.” Green replied.
While the court is awaiting the appearance of Sacramento High Court Commissioner Gary Link (Gary Link), Green appears to be resuming surgery on the patient while filming the nurse.
When Green was about to show off his multitasking skills, Link was not happy and expressed concern about the welfare of the patient.
He said: “Unless I am mistaken, I will see that the defendant in the middle of the operating room seems to be actively serving the patient. Mr. Green, right?”
“Yes, sir.” Green said.
Link said he was unwilling to continue the trial, so he rescheduled the date to March 4.
“We want to keep people healthy. He said: “We want to keep them alive. This is very important. “
When NBC News asked Green about the Sacramento Bee’s report and his court hearing, he said: “This is not accurate, I have nothing to say. Thank you.”
He ended the call.
The California Medical Council said on Saturday that it was “aware of this incident and will investigate it because it will receive all complaints.”
Spokesperson Carlos Villatoro said the board “hopes that doctors will follow the standard of care when treating patients.”
