“I’ve seen texting among people I’m supervising in the O.R. … It is not, unfortunately, uncommon to see them doing any number of things with that computer beyond patient care. … Amazon, Gmail, I’ve seen all sorts of shopping, I’ve seen ebay. You name it, I’ve seen it.” —Dr. Stephen Luczycki, an anesthesiologist and medical director
in one of the surgical intensive-care units at Yale-new Haven (Conn.) Hospital, in a New York Times story on medical personnel
distracted by mobile technology.
