A doctor and nurse are being investigated after an abortion was performed on a woman by mistake.
The doctor and nurse performed the procedure on the wrong woman at a clinic in Seoul, CNN reports.
They are now accused of negligence resulting in actual bodily harm, according to officers. The woman, who was 6 weeks pregnant, visited the clinic and due to a confusion with medical charts and a failure to check her identity an abortion was performed by mistake.
“The doctor and nurse have acknowledged their fault,” a police official said, according to CNN.
The patient was supposed to receive a nutritional shot at the clinic. The nurse allegedly injected her with anesthesia without confirming her identity, and the doctor performed the abortion without checking her identity, the local news agency reported.
