In what can be termed as medical negligence, a team of doctors removed the gall bladder of a woman instead of her swollen appendix.

The incident took place at the sub-district hospital in Kashmir's Ganderbal district. The doctors became targets of public anger late Thursday when it was discovered that they had removed the gall bladder of a woman who was diagnosed as a patient of appendicitis, hospital sources said.

The block medical officer of the hospital later tried to pacify the agitated husband and relatives of the patient by ordering an inquiry into the incident.

Earlier this month, a pregnant woman delivered a baby in a vehicle on way back home after doctors at the same hospital sent her back saying her delivery was still not due.

The news itemseems to be fabricated.As per the surgeon the said pt was diagnosed as a case of peritonitis and was operated immediately. exploratory was performed.operative finding include pus admixed with bile in pertoneal cavity with perforated gallbladder.emergency cholecystetomy was performed and pts life was saved.One fails to understand how a pt with perforated appendix can survive if not treated and gallbladder removed instead?
