WI: Bill to Allow Patients to Request the Recording of Operations

A state representative in Wisconsin has introduced a bill allowing patients to request audio and video recordings in operating rooms.  The rationale is to have better evidence of whether an alleged medical error occurred.  A similar bill was introduced in 2015, but did not gain traction.  No jurisdiction in the United States has such a law.  WDJT Milwaukee has the story.
