ODISHA DOCTOR OPERATES ON WRONG LEG
A woman in Anandpur area of Odisha's Keonjhar district has suffered double pain allegedly due to negligence on the part of a doctor and hospital staff.
The doctor allegedly performed a surgery on the woman’s right leg instead of the left one, reports said on Sunday.
According to reports, one Mita Rani Jena of Khadbali village in the district had come to the Anandpur sub-divisional hospital on Saturday after she complained of severe pain on her left leg. The concerned doctor advised her to undergo operation due to a wound on the left leg.
However, due to some confusion allegedly created by the hospital staff, the doctor performed the surgery on the right leg.
After the doctor realised about the blunder, he operated on the left leg. The ordeal of the woman began after the operation as she was unable to walk properly due to surgery on her both legs.
Tension gripped the hospital premises after the incident as locals opposed and criticised the careless act of the doctor.
