Let us return to the essence of the dispute. Social conflicts over this issue have been acute lately. Before deciding whether to agree or disagree, I feel bad that the process in which members of the society select and discuss the issues, and reach consensus as a result is not seen well.
In reality, there are some who believe that CCTV in operating rooms is necessary, while others are uncomfortable with it and feel that their individual freedom will be violated.
First of all, so far, we have not felt uncomfortable or difficult because we have not had CCTV in our operating rooms. However, with the recent outbreak of problems such as proxy surgery, not only the victims but also the general public have started to recognize the need by thinking that it might also happen to them too. As the public began to perceive it as a possible situation, the problem situation became generalized. Of course the victims and their families must burst into a rage and feel victimized. In addition, this illegal situation must not happen. However, doctors and their patients are struggling in every operating room at this moment. Nevertheless, it would be unfair for doctors to be labeled as the potential cause of the problem and be under surveillance as a potential criminal simulating proxy surgery.
If highly ranked government officials are asked to install CCTV in their private offices and vehicles because of their irregularities, is it possible to keep all the problems as CCTV data and access them at any time?
Personally, I think our society should protect the victims of proxy surgery as well as the doctors who do their best for patients. Therefore, I think the discussion of banning and preventing surrogacy surgery is a far better start to the consensus process, not a sensational discussion of installing CCTV in the operating room. I believe that doctors and patients will actively participate in the discussion to protect good doctors and patients who might be harmed by proxy surgery.
Why should it be right or wrong to physically install a machine called a CCTV camera in an operating room? It really does not make sense. < 저작권자 © 중앙헤럴드 무단전재 및 재배포금지 >
