Abstract

A woman arrived at the ED of a hospital and was complaining of abdominal pain. ED staff ordered a CT scan of the woman’s lower abdomen. The radiology department reported that the woman’s CT scan indicated a perforated bowel and/or appendix. However, the CT scan that the radiology department reported actually was that of another patient and had been incorrectly labeled as the woman’s CT scan.
