Wow. A few months ago, at Rhode Island Hospital, a neurosurgeon relied on his memory to know which side of a patient’s head had the problem and found out his memory wasn’t so good, and the patient died. Fast-forward to November, at the same hospital, when another neurosurgeon opens the wrong side of another patient’s head, and we learn that this latest case is the third case at this hospital in nine months, after a big review of their practices which happened after case no. 2 died. Um, yikes. I say again, if you need neurosurgery and you’re in the Rhode Island area, if you can avoid that hospital, do it!
