Scalpel, sponge, Flip camera?

Or, could you move your hand so I can get a better shot of that incision?

The Globe had a brief this morning about a bill that would allow patients to videotape surgery. It wouldn’t be like dads who stand around waiting to get a shot as the new baby pops out. According to the story:

The measure would let licensed medical videographers  record the procedures. They would not have to be in the operating room at the time. A copy of the  video would be given to the hospital for its records.

The Boston Public Health Commission tweets: “I feel there is a bigger story behind this.”
