Hospital Technician Sued for Watching Porn During Open-Heart Surgery

A surgical technician at New York's Mount Sinai hospital is being sued by a former colleague who says he called her derogatory names and regularly watched porn on his cell phone during open-heart surgeries.

Other hospital employees told the New York Post that the hospital's atmosphere was reminiscent of a Grey's Anatomy plotline. (Although we don't recall McDreamy watching X-rated movies while on the job; that sounds more like the premise of a Law and Order episode.)

"People here are horny," one staffer explained. "All these hours we spend together here, we get very comfortable with each other." Ah. That thing where you get so comfortable during open-heart surgery that you check out YouPorn.

"It's horrendous," said another female employee. "Some men think they are entitled to do those things. It's terrible. Not only should they lose their jobs but someone should catch them in the streets and beat their tail off. That's street justice." We understand where she's coming from, but, to be honest, wouldn't really want her around during surgery either. Where have all the calm, stable, non-horny doctors gone?

One employee did make an excellent and obvious point. "That's how people die," he said. "Because they got stupid people like that around."
