    WTF!?

    How in the....

    What the hell does her amputaion surgery have to do with other patients? The amputated her arms and legs, without her knowledge, and now they refuse to tell her why?

    I hope she sues them into oblivion! It's bad enough that she has to sue them, to get them to explain themselves, I hope she takes them for everything they've got in the process. She can never get back what they took from her, but with luck she'll be able to keep them from butchering enyone else.

    I'm so pissed, now.

    Because, odds are, they fucked up. What if they didn't staralize a scalple that was recently used on another patient and that patient had strep. Just a what if, but its possible, considering the story.

    She'll have to be trained to use prosthetics so she can walk and hold things the rest of her life.

    She'll never be able to hold her baby or feel it's forehead for a fever, give a real hug, do anything that a mother with normal limbs could do.

    That, to me is priceless and as such you better be prepared to pay BILLIONS for that. There are some things money can't buy, and in this case...well you get the idea.

    Horrible.

    It's cases like these where I wish for a return to an "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" system of legal justice. AND the people responsible should have to pay her large amounts of money.

    The fact that the hospital doesn't want to tell her sounds to me of a cover up for malpractice. And all the money in the world won't give her back her arms and legs. But it would help.

    Sounds like something you would see on tv where they perform a surgery on the wrong patient by mistake. Sad.

    What the hell?!? That's horrible. What was supposed to be a time of joy has become a tragedy. I hope this poor woman wins the lawsuit.
