Pranks seem to be a part of the daily landscape at work, well at least in my corner of the universe. I walk away from my computer, and then an email goes out to the entire staff asking if anyone has any hemorrhoid cream. It never ends.

But a hospital staff's prank may have gone too far, when Dr. Patrick Yang decorated a co-worker's face with a mustache and teardrops as she lay unconscious on the operating table. A nursing attendant then snapped photos. Veronica Valdez had worked at Torrance Memorial Hospital in Southern California for 13 years, and was having minor surgery on her finger.

So did the hospital staff cross the line, or is Valdez simply looking for an easy payoff?
