Bulgarian Surgeons Operate Toddler's Wrong Arm

Three Bulgarian emergency surgeons face harsh penalties for operating by mistake the wrong arm of a toddler.
Doctors from the emergency "
Pirogov"
hospital in the Bulgarian capital Sofia have done surgery on a toddler's healthy arm, the hospital press center informed.

The child – a girl, 1 year and 10 months of age, was scheduled to have part of the bone in her right arm removed. The surgeons' team, however, operated her left arm.

According to the "
Pirogov"
press center, the reason was a technical mistake made at the time the toddler was admitted at the hospital.

The receiving physician and the assistant surgeon will be sanctioned by a "
dismissal warning,"
while the head surgeon could be fired, despite the fact she immediately realized the mistake and closed the surgical opening.

The mistake will not leave the child's left arm damaged.

The case is investigated by a special commission, which issued the proposal for the penalties against the three doctors. The final decision must be made by the hospital head, Dimitar Radenovski, who has declined comments on the case.

This sort of thing has happened in the UK. So nothing new.

I think your right with that comment Tony but it doesn't do much for those who are thinking about the move and looking into the care and treatment in Bulgaria you know how some people only have tunnel vision. But this is very sad indeed and it doesn't give any of us much faith in the system here

Mistakes happen everywhere in the World. Bulgaria is not alone in this. Its just that forums for ex pats will pick up on it. The sevice that we have expierenced so far and that given to others that we have met has been second to none.
