Surgery Done On Wrong Part Of Body-A Maryland Medical Malpractice Nightmare

Posted by Frank Spector | Jan 22, 2013 | 0 Comments

Usually, a nurse or junior doctor will mark the body part before the main surgeon comes in to do the operation.  Sometimes, patients get mixed up and you have the surgery meant for someone else.
