Man has wrong leg amputated

An Austrian 82 year old man has had the wrong leg amputated.

The patient, who was at the The Freistadt Clinic, had several illnesses and both of his legs were affected. Doctors said that the left one had progressed to the point where it needed to be amputated.

However, doctors removed the right one instead, cutting it off mid thigh.

The Clinic blamed the incident on human error. They said the error was made shortly before the operation, when it was time to mark the correct leg for amputation.

Clinic staff were actually the first ones to notice the error when they went to change the patient’s bandages on Thursday morning. The patient later woke up and learned the bad news.

The clinic says it is investigating the incident and will review its standards to ensure it does not happen again.
