Man sues hospital and doctor after they allegedly forgot to remove his appendix during his appendectomy
Posted by Staff
Yahoo News:

43-year-old William McCormack of Bronxville, New York needed an appendectomy at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake, New York because of stomach pains he was suffering while visiting Lake Placid. During surgery it was discovered that his appendix was still inside him. Why is that strange? Because, as The Journal News reports, Mr. McCormack had had an appendectomy in 2013. It would appear that his first time getting the procedure, his doctor had forgotten to actually remove his appendix.

Now, Mr. McCormack is suing Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, and its former director of surgery,Dr. Michael Kerin. WCBS 880 spoke with McCormack’s attorney, Mitchell Baker. Mr. Baker told the news station, “We have an operative report from Lawrence Hospital saying that the appendix was removed. Most importantly, we have the pathology report from Lawrence Hospital after the first operation which says what was presented to the pathology department was not the appendix.” The Journal News notes that Dr. Kerin electronically signed the operative report.
