Jessie Matlock was supposed to get surgeon on his left eye to fix his wandering eye. A simple procedure went wrong as the wrong eye was circled. The surgeon Dr. Shawn Goodman did the surgery and realized his mistake after finishing it. Now, what was he to do with the wandering eye? He did the surgery on it, too.
Shawn Goodman couldn’t be reached at the hospital and the hospital CEO released this statement:
We have a critical incident team that will be responding to it, that will be interviewing all of our staff in the operating room as well as private practice physicians in the operating room that were involved,” said hospital CAO Dr. Lori Morgan. “Our hope is to never have it happen again in any of our hospitals.”
