There was also a problem involving knowledge-based behavior: the ability of the surgeon to speak the patient’s language (and the inability of the other team members to do so) allowed for a nonstandard solution (surgeon acting as interpreter) that effectively shut out other team members from full participation in the informed-consent process. Since the replacement staff members were unable to verify communication between the physician and their patient, a misunderstanding resulted, in which the nurse thought that a conversation between the patient and the surgeon represented a time-out.
