So, they injected her with a powerful antiseptic, instead of an anesthetic? How does something like that happen, honestly? And the English woman who only had a drop enter her system was left permanently disabled.. So what happens to Ms. Wang, who had almost 8 mL in her system? I don't see how the two get mixed up..

Nowhere near the same magnitude or importance, but my cat was recently killed while getting general vaccinations and somehow received a dosage meant for horses. So that just goes to show that the people in our society that get paid the most, to do the most important things, still eff up.

I don't see how that's of a lesser magnitude. One mistake, and as a consequence a life is lost. Animal or human, it's still of great magnitude.

Wow, that really sucks. Quite a strange mix-up though.

Thank you, kind sir. I was just covering my ass because I figured if I didn't someone would hate on my softness of loving a cat as much as a human. I love animals just as much as people, if not more.

I think anywhere you look, stuff like this is going to happen. I mean, I live in OK, and when my grandfather was taken to the hospital for severe respiratory problems, they actually neglected to check on him for almost three days.. The only reason they checked on him was because he completely flatlined! Obviously, the entire staff (not exaggerating) came running in freaking out and didn't know what happened.. Needless to say after they revived him we transferred him to a different hospital within the day..

And there's a woman in Ontario who got a mastectomy when she was going to undergo a few tests. Medical errors are quite common. There was another old woman who got the wrong leg amputated. :/

A bit like the German locum who injected some old dude with about 10 times the safe dose of an opiate he wasn't familiar with, and deaded him.

Or perhaps one dude who had the wrong kidney removed, so the healthy one got plucked out, and the one with the tumour left in.

As astounding a mistake as mixing antiseptic and anaesthetic up are (I suppose you could say they sound similar, but surely they're not in similar looking bottles labled "antiseptic" and "anaesthetic"), you can't really expect anyone to be infallible; everyone makes mistakes and, sadly, when doctors do, the consequences can be quite dire. I can't help but pity doctors who do makes mistakes like this, with the shit storm they get and the guilt they must feel.

As the hollow men
