The Kaohsiung Department of Health on Thursday (April 11) fined Kaohsiung Municipal Min-Sheng Hospital half of a million NT dollars following a surgical error for misidentifying two patients and consequently causing one of them to undergo the wrong surgery last week.

  高雄市立民生醫院上週因誤認兩名患者,導致其中一名患者接受錯誤手術,高雄市衛生廳週四對該院醫療疏失處以新台幣五十萬元罰款。

municipal:(a.)市立的
surgical:(a.)手術的
misidentify:(v.)誤認
consequently:(adv.)因此,表示作為……的結果

──────────────────  
  The patient who was confused for another patient in his ward had been transferred from a care center to Kaohsiung Municipal Min-Sheng Hospital. The medical personnel involved had skipped the SOP and in the operating theater, neither the nurses, the anesthesiologist nor the surgeon confirmed the patient’s identity as required. The mistake was only discovered after the operation was completed. Later, It was also found that the surgeon involved had asked the patient to sign a surgery consent form after the matter.

  被誤認為是另一位病人而送進開刀房的病人是由養護醫院轉進民生醫院的。涉及該起事件的醫療人員省略了SOP,在手術室,包括護理師、麻醉科醫師,到最後主刀的主治醫師都未依規定明確辨識病患身分。直到操作完成後才發現這個錯誤。執刀醫師被查出手術同意書是事後讓病人補簽。

anesthesiologist:(n.)麻醉醫師
neither A nor B:非A也非B,亦即A和B兩者都不(或沒有)的意思
operation:(n.)手術
surgery:(n.)手術
operation和surgery都可以表示「手術」,一般來說,operation是手術的統稱,是個泛用字,而surgery通常表示外科手術,是一個比較專業的用語。
consent:(n.)同意

  The surgeon had not only operated on the wrong patient, but also falsified the patient’s medical records. After a review, the surgeon received another major demerit, for a total of two, and was dismissed. All consultations for the surgeon involved in the incident have been canceled. The hospital was penalized under the Medical Care Act Article 108, Section 1, which allows for a maximum fine of NT$500,000. The city’s health department has taken disciplinary action against management and removed the superintendent.

  主治醫師不但開錯刀,且事後涉嫌病例登載偽造,經人審會議處,再記一大過,共計兩大過,予以免職。 事發後執刀醫師在民生醫院的看診已經全部停止。根據高雄市衛生署通報,該院依據醫療法第一百零八條第一項處罰,最高罰款新台幣五十萬元。衛生局對管理層連坐處分,並撤換院長。

falsify:(v.)竄改;偽造
dismiss:(v.)解除(職務)
consultation:(n.)會診
penalize:(v.)處罰
disciplinary:(a.)紀律的
superintendent:(n.)主管

  Demerits were given to the anesthesiologist, operating room nurses, ward nurses, and the worker who helped transfer the patient from the ward to the operation room for having failed to properly identify the patient. Meanwhile, the hospital also issued warnings to the deputy medical director, surgical department director and nursing department director. The operating director, operating head nurse, and ward nurse were all reprimanded. The hospital is now fully committed to rectifying and implementing patient safety control mechanisms.
  
  麻醉師、手術室護理師、病房護理師以及幫助將患者從病房轉移到手術室的工作人員因未能核實患者身分而被記過。醫院也對醫學副院長、外科主任、護理部主任發出警告。手術主任、手術護士長、病房護士受到兩次警告。目前,醫院正全力整改落實病患安全管控機制。
