Girl 15 Did C-Section Op

croatiantimes.com

Hospital officials have apologised to a mother after admitting that they allowed a 15-year-old schoolgirl to assist in the Caesarean section birth of her baby in Malmo, Sweden.

The mother only found out that the teenager had wielded a scalpel in the op when she read about it in a local newspaper.

Even then, she said, she thought: "It can't be us, no-one's told us."

The truth only emerged later the same day when the surgeon called the family to admit that she'd allowed the schoolgirl - a relative of the medic - to take part in the procedure last May.

Officials also admitted that the youngster had assisted in a second birth and had shadowed the surgeon during a number of ops.

At first they dismissed complaints, saying they would never release details of the ops.

But now they've apologised to the family for their "shoddy" treatment.

And Sweden's The National Board of Health rapped the clinic for breaching regulations that ban anyone aged under 18 from assisting in an operating theatre.

The tot's father told local media: "We're satisfied now but the main thing is that mother and baby are both healthy."
