Hole in the Head
From The Washington Post, A16, 26 Nov 1994:
- A Wilmington, N.C., neurosurgeon's license was suspended after
he left a patient's brain exposed for 25 minutes while he got lunch.
The state medical board said neurosurgeon Raymond Sattler, 50, forgot
the names of surgical equipment and told a nurse to drill holes in a
patient's head and work on the outer brain even though she was not
trained to do so.
