A surgeon in Austria has been fined after amputating the wrong leg of a patient earlier this year.
The elderly patient’s right leg was removed instead of his left, with the mistake only discovered two days later. The court in Linz found the 43-year-old guilty of gross negligence and fined her €2,700 ($6,546.90 FJD). The widow of the patient, who died before the case came to court, was also awarded €5,000 ($12,123.80 FJD) in damages.
I don’t think that’s enough to compensate for someone cutting off the wrong leg… what are your thoughts
What would make a good compensation for someone who had cut off the wrong body part??
