Huffington Post – “A hospital in Germany is being sued for medical malpractice after surgeons allegedly left more than a dozen medical odds and ends inside a cancer patient’s body during a 2009 operation.
The man, identified by the Daily Mail as 74-year-old Dirk Schroeder, had reportedly undergone a “routine surgery” for prostate cancer. The operation was believed to have gone well and Schroeder was told that he had at least “another six years” to live.–
–However, post-surgery, Schroeder discovered that his wounds had healed badly. According to his family, his pain was so intense that he often could not sit.–
–When surgeons operated on Schroeder again, they were stunned to find 16 pieces of medical equipment in the man’s body. This included “a needle, a six-inch roll of bandage, a six-inch long compress, several swabs and a fragment of surgical mask,” writes the Daily Mail.
It reportedly took two operations to remove all the items.”
Woof. Germans huh? Maybe they should worry about taking role call after a surgery than Oktoberfest and Braats. 16 medical instruments? Shit man, I don’t notice alot of shit, my awareness is lower than Teo’s (too soon?). But for Christ’s sake, you should know when your tools are gone, all 16 of them.
And this is why I don’t go to the doctor.
Apparently the hospital offered the family of Dirk Schroeder 660$! Are you kidding me? The family said fuck that, and demanded $127,000…If thats not a boss move I don’t know what is! I, personally, would have sued them for even single nickel and dime, but thats just my inner Jew talking…
