This is the 5th time since 2007. This time the surgical site was the patient’s hand. Apparently, and the reports differ, it was the correct hand, the right finger but the wrong joint. I have to give the hospital credit for publicizing the mistake. It can’t be easy for the hospital’s president Timothy Babineau. Even though the mistake won’t help to make patients comfortable his honesty with the public is refreshing.
