Vanderbilt hospital operated on the WRONG kidney: Woman sues for $25 million


A Tennessee woman is suing Vanderbilt University Medical Center after doctors operated on the wrong kidney during her surgery. However, despite three safeguards to remind doctors where to operate, the team placed the stent in her right kidney. She is demanding $25 million in damages in a lawsuit filed on Tuesday, the Tennessean reports. Last month, another lawsuit claimed a Vanderbilt patient died when an unsupervised resident botched a routine procedure. Then, a former Vanderbilt nurse was indicted on charges of accidentally administering a lethal dose of a paralyzing drug.
