Our expert says:
Sadly, it appears that this sort of thing does happen, though I consider it grossly unprofessional of the surgeons who allow this, and if anything were to go wrong they'd all be in dreadful trouble. I've heard persistent rumours about reps selling various surgical gadgets, who not only should never be allowed within the operating theatre, but indeed being encouraged to help use the apparatus. They should be arrested and struck off the register promptly
