SHOCKING: Doctor performs abortion on wrong patient
A medical doctor in South Korea has performed an abortion on the wrong patient after there was a mix-up in the medical charts of patients at the clinic.
According to The Star Online, the police has arrested the gynaecologist and nurse, who aborted the six-weeks pregnancy on charges of professional negligence for failing to check the patient’s information before the procedure.
The police said that the victim had been prescribed nutritional supplements on August 7.
It was reported that when she entered the delivery room — where the hospital apparently also gave injections and conducted surgeries — neither the nurse nor the doctor checked the patient’s identity.
