Mix-up at Prague hospital results in abortion performed on wrong patient

Oy vey.

[quote]Gross staff negligence and a likely language barrier resulted in doctors at a Prague hospital mixing up two patients, both foreigners, and terminating an otherwise healthy pregnancy without the expectant mother’s consent or knowledge.

[quote]The error occurred on March 25 at the Bulovka University Hospital. A woman in the fourth month of pregnancy turned up for a routine check-up. Due to a mix-up that went unnoticed by the nurses, doctors, gynecologist, and anaesthesiologist involved, she was instead put under anesthesia and without her consent was subjected to curettage, a type of uterus surgery and also a method of abortion, intended for another patient.

[quote]In Czechia, abortion can be legally performed for any reason up to 12 weeks, up to 24 weeks for medical reasons, and at any point of the pregnancy in case of fetal abnormality. The procedure is covered by public medical health insurance or can be performed privately.
