Wonderful blog. I can still remember several incidents similar to yours from school and training. I clearly remember a cardiothoracic surgeon in the operating room telling a patient (under anesthesia at the the time) that it was all his fault he was needing a bypass. And he used words that don't bear repeating. Since we don't really know how much people remember from when they are under, I was horrified.
I still cry with my patients. And sometimes get laughed at for it.
