Doctors in Kenya realized two hours into brain surgery they were operating on the wrong patient.
According to Daily Nation, this was "one of the worst cases of medical malpractice to become public at Kenyatta National Hospital".
Kenyatta National Hospital is Kenya's oldest and largest hospital, and also serves as a teaching hospital.
In a miracle of some sort, the Nation was informed that both patients were in good condition, and that the one who had a clot might not undergo surgery because he had improved significantly. It has demanded a report from the hospital and plans to hold a hearing.
Two hospital officials in Kenya have been placed on leave for an incident in which a physician performed brain surgery on the wrong patient.
Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki who apologized to the family of the affected patient and Kenyans directed the hospital's board to immediately undertake a probe on the referral hospital's mess.

Health department epidemiologist Karin Martin declined to say whether the kids who have died had been vaccinated against the flu. That brings the statewide total to 253 since the flu season began October 1, far exceeding 218 deaths from the previous year.
A Kenyan doctor has reportedly been suspended after performing a brain surgery on the wrong patient. The hospital said that it had done all it could "to ensure the safety and well-being of the patient in question" adding that it had suspended the doctor.
Last evening, hospital management threw out this reporter by dramatically having security guards escort her out of the premises for making enquiries about the incident.
On Friday, the hospital's full name was a top Twitter trend with some users calling for the resignation of the CEO Lily Koros.
The hospital said the surgeon, as well as two nurses and an anaesthetist, had been suspended pending an investigation into the operation "on the wrong patient". A show-cause letter requires a staff member to account for his or her actions.
Other staff at the hospital are protesting the suspension and saying the person/people who tagged the patients are the ones who made the mistake.
