Have you ever read, or seen the movie adapted form the novel, "Coma" by Robin Cook?

Never did catch that one, KDP. Thanks for the tip!

Paul, what is really creepy is that the release of Cook's novel and the news article are within months of each other. Cook probably started his novel in late 1976.

For a dark comedy about hospital mix-ups, try the movie The Hospital (George C. Scott, Diana Rigg). Recommended to me by an ER nurse, who said it's all true.

This has happened at Bankstown Hospital in Sydney, and it wasn't discovered until a baby died and another was brain damaged. No laughing matter that resulted in two engineers fired and a state minister for health disgraced.
