Australian surgeons remove patient's wrong body part in shocking error

 Australian surgeons remove patient
In a shocking example of medical negligence, doctors at the Northern Beaches Hospital in Australia removed the wrong body part during surgery on a male cancer patient. The patient was forced to undergo a corrective operation after surgeons mistakenly removed the wrong part of his bowel. 
 
A spokesperson for the hospital's health care provider said: "The patient and their family have been provided full disclosure and NBH is supporting their ongoing care and treatment."
 
 
Northern Beaches Hospital, a 488-bed hospital, was opened in October last year and has since been struggling with shortage of essential drugs, medical equipment, and industrial disputes.
 
 
A parliamentary inquiry into the matter is underway.
