Anesthesiologist Bad-Mouths Patient - Does This Occur Often?

I'm not surprised that there are some doctors who do this.  I've heard other stories where anesthesiologists demean their patients.  In my own personal experience, the operating room personnel sometimes swear at each other or make casual jokes, but these are never directed at the patient.  I just wonder how much of this is unaccounted for, since most patients don't have the opportunity to record their doctors.  Should all operating rooms be monitored after this incident? Does the patient even have the right to secretly record the operation?  Feel free to comment.
