I hope she isn't expected to pay for the wrong operation! There is no excuse for a mistake like that!

That's awful! On the same vein of wrong surgery.....

Over the course of my life I have had many people rip me a new azzole.

At least if a doctor does it it will be clean, neat, and you will get anesthesia.

I hope they didn't put the anus where the leg was supposed to be.

Default I Can't Help Myself!

Where's my compassion and anger? Instead of having compassion for the poor victim of this crime of negligence and malpractice, all I can do is laugh my butt off ( no pun intended ) when I read it. I know that social correctness dictates that I should be in a somber mood and also very angry at the incompetent fool who mistreated the patient in such a manner, yet I'm still laughing as I write these words. I'm probably writing my own ticket to hell, but like the Four Tops once sang, I Can't Help Myself!
