    Hi. I wish I could remember the source, but I recall just hearing on the news the other day where there were a high number of cases where the wrong body parts were removed. I understand there is going to be a crack down on these. Does anyone out there recall the media source of this recent information?

    Only 6.5 million???? I would want twice that, for myself, if my fiance lost his "member".

    It's not like you can just go out and get a new one!!!

    6.5 mill is gonna pay for what?
    Puzzles, Books, Macrame kit?

    What do you do without a "Pepe" (as in Pepe Lepew)anyway?
    I'm afraid the "life force" would be devoured by a gigantic black hole of despair appearing as the little white dot in the middle of a t.v. tube losing its ion flow. It would be spirited away into the darkest edge of my universe leaving every testosterone molecule left in my body to die of old age.
    A "frontal lobotomy" of my will to live.
    A "Yin" without a "Yang".
    Intellect with no neanderthal persuasions to struggle with is like a Batman without The Penguin and Superman in a world with no Lex Luther. Left to atrophy from disuse with no judgements to exercise, just to "wither"(pun intended)..

    I think the money is as useless as the flap in his bvd's.

    the topic, read your reply 3 times !! Oh yes, I heard it also, on the radio this week, it was on several times....and an article in the local newspaper. One doctor said there was"" no excuse for these kind of errors," and suggested something as simple as using a black felt marker to mark the spot, e.g., mark the knee, shouder, etc., so the right one doesn't get the knife when it shoulda been the left, part of the pre-op prep I guess.

    The lawyer gets 50% . It was settled out of court..never even went to trial. How long will it take for a nurse to make 3 mill? a lifetime of work and we will still never make 3 mill. wish i had gone to law school.
