What to expect when your pap smear goes wrong
MALTA, Sweden—A Swedish woman’s recent pap smear is a cause for concern.
A patient’s health has been compromised by a faulty drug test administered by a doctor at a Malmö hospital.
The patient had been told the test was the safest way to detect HIV in the blood.
The doctor used a fake blood test to falsify results, and it was discovered on the patient’s hospital bed.
The patient is in hospital and is in serious condition, according to Malmoe hospital spokeswoman.
She was admitted to the hospital last week.
Malmö Hospital said on Tuesday that the doctor responsible for administering the test and the hospital will be held responsible.
The hospital is also asking the patient for a public apology.
“This is a tragic case,” Malmoes chief doctor, Anders Nilsson, told The Local on Wednesday.
“We want to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.”
Nilsson said the doctor involved is now working on a second fake test that is safe and that the patient is likely to get better soon.
“The patient has been in stable condition and is now back in the operating room.
She is in a stable condition with no serious consequences.
We hope that this is the end of this,” he said.
Doctors at the hospital are also urging patients to always keep their blood tests and test kits in their own homes.
They say they will use the fake tests for as long as needed to protect patients and their privacy.
“People are entitled to trust their own medical judgement and I’m not aware of any other situation where a person is being held responsible for using a fake test,” Nilsson said.
