An Impending Accident?

Christine Molchan, CRNA

To the Editor

In regard to the Winter ‘Letter to the Editor’ topic of ‘reading during cases, both related medical literature and non-medical pleasure reading,’ I agree with the letter writer. Distracting yourself places the patient at risk.

I have often wondered how many of those auto drivers who drink coffee, talk on the phone and comb their hair while changing lanes on the expressway end up causing an accident.
