Next up for cell phones with built-in digital cameras: making house calls for doctors.
Next to come: plaintiff’s attorneys paying for their photos.
I thought about this while suturing a patinet recently, and the patients’ friend took ‘before and after’ photos while I was in the room. While I wasn’t in the pictures (so far as I know), it made me wonder what new chicanery lies in store. Makes me want to take my own ‘before and after’ wound pictures (although when I brought this up so many committees and lawyers were suggested I let it go).
It’s a brave new world, and it’s going to be caught on digicams. Goody.
PS: (I’ll know it’s a new world when my telephone book doesn’t make me feel soiled just touching it: plaintiff lawyer ads front, spine and back covers).
