How does this even happen?!?! A man who was mistakenly circumcised in a hospital mix-up has been awarded compensation, the hospital said.
Terry Brazier, 70, went into Leicester Royal Infirmary for a bladder procedure known as a “cystoscopy,” but was mistaken for another patient by hospital staff and accidentally circumcised. You read that right– accidentally circumcised.
The hospital apologized and looked into the incident, before confirming on Monday it had awarded Brazier a £20,000 ($24,300) payout.
Brazier said that he was distracted talking with hospital staff that he didn’t notice he was getting the incorrect procedure until it was too late.
