Delhi govt doc performs leg surgery on patient with head injury

406

In a case of medical negligence, a government hospital doctor in Delhi mistakenly performed leg surgery on a patient admitted with a head injury.

The government doctor has now been barred from conducting surgeries without supervision.

He is said to have got confused between two patients.

The doctor apparently drilled a hole into the patient’s leg. That was when the patient’s son noticed the error and alerted the hospital.
