Negligence leads to removal of woman's gall bladder instead of appendix

In a recent development, a woman's gall bladder was removed instead of her swollen appendix. Highlighting the poor state of healthcare in the country, this incidence had shone light on the negligence by doctors. The incident took place at the sub-district hospital in Kashmir's Ganderbal district. The doctors became targets of public anger when it was discovered that they had removed the gall bladder of a woman who was diagnosed as a patient of appendicitis, hospital sources said.

The block medical officer of the hospital later tried to pacify the agitated husband and relatives of the patient by ordering an inquiry into the incident. Earlier this month, a pregnant woman delivered a baby in a vehicle on way back home after doctors at the same hospital sent her back saying her delivery was still not due.
