British surgeon transplant Simon Bramhall accused of burning his initials in the donor liver of patients, was sentenced to 120 hours of community service and a fine in the amount of 10 thousand pounds sterling (13,6 thousand dollars). About it reports The Guardian.
Also Bramhall deprived of medical practice.
The scandal erupted when, in 2013, colleagues of the doctor sued him in court for what he left “autographs” with his initials S and b failed to detect during one of the operations for transplantation of the donor liver to the patient.
The hospital staff said that the man had used a special apparatus, which usually cauterize blood vessels to promote healing.
In the hospital he worked for 12 years and was considered an experienced professional in the field of Transplantology. The exact number of affected patients it turns out. Currently, we know of at least two cases. According to one of my colleagues Bramhall, “if the bereaved family agrees to give his body to the needy patient, she obviously did not expect such a mocking attitude”.
