I guess the expression “cost an arm and a leg” doesn’t mean very much anymore.
> fined her €2,700 ($3,060), with **half the amount suspended**
So she pays €1350 now, and the rest if she does it again???
I suspect the real damage will have been to her reputation and employability though.
The surgeon is only one part of a team. If she was told the operation is to amputate X, the failure came from somewhere else first. It doesn’t sound like everyone in the room was like *gasp! No don’t do that!* and she proceeded anyways, everyone was on board with the surgery. She’s not the only one at fault here, the whole team is.
It was probably a my-right-or-your-right type mix up
I thought this kind of thing only happened in Rimworld.
