ABSTRACT
Some facilities and professional organizations are backing away from live surgery broadcasts. Critics cite patient safety concerns and liability risks. • There is disagreement about whether surgeons are distracted during broadcasts, but plaintiffs' attorneys will claim the surgeon's attention was divided. • Consider offering a taped broadcast, but explore associated liability with that format. • Decide on the audience, format, procedure, surgery, and gatekeeper/moderator (for a webcast). Also determine who will do the taping/broadcasting and how to handle an emergency.
