Kenya doctors ‘perform brain surgery on wrong patient’

A Kenyan doctor has been suspended after cutting open the head of the wrong patient.

One patient needed surgery on a blood clot on the brain while the other just needed nursing for swelling. The doctors did not realize the mistake until hours into the surgery, when they discovered there was no blood clot in the brain.

Kenyatta National Hospital, says that it deeply regrets the mistake and has suspended the doctor. But the doctor’s colleagues have protested the suspension, arguing it should be the person who put on the identification tag that should be punished.
