Having a health issue can cause any Connecticut resident to feel frightened. An individual may feel a bit more calm after learning that a surgical procedure or other treatment could help address his or her condition. Unfortunately, this sense of calm may be short-lived after learning that more problems were created due to medical malpractice.
One woman in another state suffered such an outcome after needing an operation. A mass had reportedly formed on her adrenal gland, and as a result, she was supposed to have the mass and gland removed through a surgical procedure. Rather than removing the gland, however, the surgeon removed that woman's healthy right kidney by mistake. The woman was not immediately made known of the error, and it was approximately one week after the surgery that she was told.
