Patient’s cranium opened up in error in Nairobi hospital

Four doctors in Kenya have been suspended after a patient ended up with his cranium having been opened up needlessly. The man was operated on by mistake when he was recovering in a Nairobi hospital.

It appears that the patients’ names got mixed up, and doctors confused one patient who needed treatment for some swelling, with another who needed surgery because of clotted blood in his brain.

The patient with the swelling ended up being operated on, and it was only after his cranium had been opened that the doctors noticed he had no blood clotting in his brain. The management of the Royal Kenyatta Hospital said the patient was still recovering, and added that he was recovering well from the needless operation.
