Elizabeth Mateo went into the hospital to repair a herinated disc. Imagine her surprise when she woke up from surgery sporting a fresh tattoo. The red rose was discovered just below her panty line. Needless to say, Elizabeth was a bit upset.
Her surgeon admitted to the artwork, explaining that it was not a permanent tattoo and he puts them on all his patients to boost their spirits.
Didn't work, doc. Now Elizabeth has hired a lawyer. So has the doctor.
"What's offensive about this complaint is that it suggests something he did was intended to be prurient, and nothing could be further from the truth," Robert Agre told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "It was intended just to make the patient feel better."
So let's get this straight, Mr. Agre. Your client tags an unconscious patient, without her consent, and it's her fault for not getting the joke?
