The forcefield would have repelled the padd would it not?
I don't know. As far as the Doctor, I guess he can go through fields without a problem cause he is a hologram which is light and forcefields itself, from my understanding of it, but the pad shouldn't be able to go through unless it is holographic as well.

You may very well have found a continuity error!

Well yeah, the most logical and "real" solution to the problem would be a writing oops. But I was wondering if there was a "trek" solution.

But as with this one there are a lot of errors in the show (for one the already 6 shuttles they destroyed in the 1th and 2nd season already )

Well since you cant keep medical equipment near a potentially violent patient, you HAVE to have the ability to remove the medical equipemnt from the area, and depending on how the patient is reacting, He might NEED to go through the forcefield to treat the patient.
It doesnt go beyond all belief that they simply autotune the doctors forcefield to the same frequency of the forcefield around the surgical bay, and he simply envelops the devices temporarily just to pass through it.

Maybe all the Doctor's equipment is keyed somehow to pass through the forcefield, but I'd say so far that holographic equipment would be the best bet. Although Angry has a pretty good idea as well.

You can probably also program a forcefield to allow certain objects to pass through

Picard took a holographic book and threw it out of the door to show Moriarty that he cannot exist outside the holodeck. That was such an error as well.

How was that an error? There were no holo projectors or whatever they're called to project a hologram outside the holodeck. Moriarty in both episodes never left the holodeck, he was later stored on a hard drive and then taken out.

The error is that when you touch a holographic object and interact with it physically, it becomes real matter because it is replicated. Thus you can have a meal and it stays inside you when you leave the holodeck. Picard also kept the lipstick from a kiss on his cheek even after leaving the holodeck, remember? So as he took the book in his hands, it should have become a real book.
