Hospi­tal pulled wrong tooth

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

A man in Chengdu who went to have a tooth ex­tracted is tak­ing the hospi­tal to court, be­cause the wrong tooth was pulled. The 26-year-old, sur­named Jiang, had been suf­fer­ing from toothache for about a year be­fore he went to hospi­tal on Oct 27. His treat­ment cost 500 yuan ($74), but Jiang re­fused to pay as the wrong tooth had been taken out. The hospi­tal said Jiang was partly to blame be­cause he agreed to the op­er­a­tion. The two sides are now wait­ing for the case to go to trial.
