Medical Mishap of the Century?

Quote:
A German retiree is taking a hospital to court after she went in for a leg operation and got a new anus instead, the Daily Telegraph is reporting.

The woman woke up to find she had been mixed up with another patient suffering from incontinence who was to have surgery on her sphincter.

The clinic in Hochfranken, Bavaria, has since suspended the surgical team.

Now the woman is planning to sue the hospital. She still needs the leg operation and is searching for another hospital to do it.
I don't even really have a comment. I mean... what is there to say? Wow! Just wow!

If it was a state run hospital can you sue? Thats normally the first right you lose.

Someone really needs to give a leg up to these doctors, because someone really made an ass of them.

No, this is the medical mishap of the century:

Wrong Kidney Removed


An investigation is underway at a Minnesota hospital where surgeons mistakenly removed the wrong kidney from a patient last week.

"This has been a tragic event and Park Nicollet has accepted full responsibility," said Dr. Samuel Carlson, chief medical officer for Park Nicollet Health Services.

The surgery was performed last Tuesday at Methodist Hospital in Minneapolis, but it wasn't until the next day that a pathologist noticed the kidney taken from the patient was healthy.

The doctor who removed the kidney, a veteran surgeon, has voluntary stopped seeing patients.

Carlson says the mistake may have originated at a Park Nicollet clinic.

"It does appear that it was during that paperwork process of office documentation that this mistake, this error, occurred in what location the lesion was."

So called wrong-site surgeries do happen.

24 were reported to the Minnesota Department of Health last year, but removal of the wrong organ is rare.

In the four-and-a-half years that state as been assembling data, "I don't know if we've ever had a wrong organ removal," said Diane Rydrych, assistant director of the state's division of health policy.

Ryrdrych says most hospitals have safety measures in place to prevent wrong-site surgery, including marking body parts to be operated on in advance of surgery and requiring a "time out" in the operating room to give surgical staff a chance to double check documentation and voice any concerns.

"I would say that these events are always preventable or almost always preventable" said Rydrych.

Carlson says standard protocols were followed in the Methodist Hospital operating room to prevent wrong-site surgery, but revealed that a new safety protocol has been added.

Methodist Hospital surgeons will now be required to double check MRI or CT scans before starting surgery.

Dr. Carlson declined to comment on the patient's prognosis, nor would he reveal the patients age and gender, citing patient confidentiality. Carlson said Park Nicollet "has apologized to the patient and family, has provided support and will continue to provide the support the patient and family need during this difficult and challenging time."

The patient remains under the care Methodist Hospital.
Nice to know that the hospital owners accepted full responsibility over all this.

Although I am sure they wanted to find some excuse.

I just can't imagine being that patient. Good thing for maximum lawsuit awards or that patient would own that entire hospital corporation.

My favorite line tho is this:

pan, while I agree that is a pretty big one, at least they took the wrong one of the correct organ. I mean, can you imagine having your anus ACCIDENTALLY replaced? Yikes!

I don't think even English, as varied and splendid a language as it is, has the words to describe the death and destruction that would follow if I were to go into an OR for anything less drastic than castration or chemical euthenasia...and come out with an extra asshole. I could live with the extra orifice if it meant I got to keep my balls or my life, but not really otherwise. I would just have to start killing people.

Seriously, can you imagine how bad that'd suck when your supper didn't agree with you? Or if you drank the water someplace where giardia or dysentary were common?

Heads. Spikes. Walls.

It surely isn't a laughing matter for the patient, but the wording just kills me.

I wonder how pissed I'd be having woken up with two anuses and a still bad leg.

Just clarification, I doubt they left the patient's then current anus and gave her another one. As I understand the issue, they replaced her anus. This is already a horrible mistake-but can you imagine if they actually created a whole new hole, so to speak?

I don't even want to think about how they would do that...
