THE Department of Health (DOH) finally named yesterday three doctors, a nurse, and a nursing attendant involved in the surgery of a florist at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC).
The procedure to remove a body spray canister from the 39-year-old patient’s rectum was captured on camera and uploaded to YouTube.
The video shows more than 10 people in an operating room shouting, giggling, and jeering, especially after the canister was removed. One of the medical staff even opened the canister and sprayed it around.  The video also captured several individuals taking footage of the operation using cellular phones. The patient, who wanted to be identified only as Jan-Jan, was unconscious all that time.
DOH Secretary Francisco Duque identified the doctors and nurses as Dr. Philips Leo Arias, head surgeon; Dr. Angelo Alinawagan, assistant surgeon; Dr. Max Joseph Montecillo, who is assigned to an adjacent operating room; nursing attendant Rosemarie Villareal; and circulating nurse Carmina Sapio.
