A Seattle surgeon was suspended in June after he was charged for sexual misconduct in the work place. This misconduct included sexting, using medical records for sexual gratification, and inappropriate relations with a patient.
An article by Guardian Liberty Voice has all of the details on the surgeon’s convictions. Arthur Zilberstein, 47, has been accused of sexting during c-sections, epidurals administration, an appendectomy, and more.
Zilberstein would send up to 45 inappropriate messages at the hospital per day. If he worked an 8-hour shift, that means he sent almost six explicit messages per hour. This was very common in the anesthesiologist’s daily routine at the hospital between April and August 2013. He was accused of taking explicit photos in his scrubs and work badge.
