    Default shaunbhoy is That You?

    A surgeon has pleaded guilty to marking his initials on the livers of two patients while performing transplant surgery.

    In a hearing at Birmingham crown court on Wednesday, Simon Bramhall admitted two counts of assault by beating relating to incidents on 9 February and 21 August 2013. He pleaded not guilty to the more serious charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
    The 53-year-old was first suspended from his post as a consultant surgeon at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth hospital in 2013 after a colleague spotted the initials “SB” on an organ during follow-up surgery on one of Bramhall’s patients.

    PC gone mad.

    Following reports of Bramhall’s suspension, his former patient Tracy Scriven told the Birmingham Mail that the surgeon should be immediately reinstated. “Even if he did put his initials on a transplanted liver, is it really that bad? I wouldn’t have cared if he did it to me. The man saved my life,” she said.

    This country needs all the surgeons it can get....

    You can always rely on the Guardian.

    It wasn't his fault, no harm done, didn't mean it, pressures of work, big fuss about nothing

    If I understand the details of the case correctly, there is no suggestion that marking the liver in this way caused any damage to its function, so the effect was – so to speak – purely artistic.

    It is easy to become a little disinhibited when operating – the stress, intense concentration and excitement, and then the relief and sense of achievement if all has gone well, can lead to behaviour that, in the cold light of a courtroom or the gleeful unfrocking of the tabloid pages, appears crass and inappropriate.

    It is not easy to be a doctor in the modern NHS – understaffed, over-managed, and under-resourced.
