No, Your Other Left.

This is… alarming:

Rhode Island Hospital has been fined $50,000 and reprimanded by the state Department of Health after its third instance this year of a doctor performing brain surgery in the wrong side of a patient’s head.

”We are extremely concerned about this continuing pattern,” health department director David R. Gifford said in a statement Monday.

Come on, people! This isn’t brain surgery – well, okay, it is, but you know what I mean.

If I ever have to get serious surgery, I’m drawing a great big “X” where they’re supposed to cut, and a big red “NO” on the other side. Can’t be too careful.

    People are now showing up to the hospital with Sharpies, writing on one leg NO, the other one YES.

    I think I’d put: CUT THIS LEG OFF AND IT WILL COST YOU YOUR LICENSE AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS….

    That might get their attention….
