When you are on the operating table, things can be very scary. Depending on what hospital you are in and which doctors you have, you may be reassured or experience record blood pressure. What if your doctors wrote their names on their caps for you? Would that help you put names to faces (or at least eyes) and feel a bit better about knowing people who are working on you?
To avoid mix-ups and increase the humanness in the operating room, a doctor has started the trend of putting your name on your surgical cap in the OR. Not only does this cut cases of mis-identification between doctors, but it also helps managers remember who was involved with which procedure, eliminating much conflict and confusion.
Do you think all hospitals should use this method?
