A 49 year-old Romanian woman was treated for colon cancer for two years whilst she was healthy.
Adina Stan's ordeal started in 2009 when she got the wrong test results from St Ioan hospital in Bucharest, Libertatea newspaper informs today (Tue).
In fact the lab assistant gave her the tests results of another patient and from there the woman's nightmare started. She endured two years of aggressive treatment with cytostatic medication.
"One cannot imagine what this treatment means. Your life changes completely. You reach a a point when you don't know any more what you want, to go on living but suffering so much or to end everything and get out of all the misery?(...)",†† Adina Stan told Libertatea.
The hospital administration admitted to the medical error, but the authorities didn't have any reaction so far. Two years after she filed a complaint with the Medics Guild, the victim has been recently invited to tell her her story before the Guild's board. But Adina Stan doesn't have confidence that she will be vindicated.
"I am sure they will try to cover up this story. The doctors protect each other", she says.
Niculae Iordache, the director of St Ioan hospital admits the error but says the victim has her share of responsibility.
"It's a regrettable medical error. Following the in-house investigation, it seems that Adina asked someone from the hospital to press the lab to release the tests sooner. By mistake, the lab assistant switched Adina's tests with an other patient's who had colon cancer. Only after we will get the final conclusions of the Medics Guild we will take measures", the director said.
