Gynecologist convicted of medical error gets 1-year jail

KUWAIT CITY, June 23: The Misdemeanor Court sentenced an obstetrician-gynecologist consultant to one-year imprisonment for causing a medical error that led to 25 percent disability in his patient and her inability to give birth again.

Representing the patient was Lawyer Zayd Al-Khabbaz who said the defendant was conducting a Caesarean Section on his client when he cut her intestine and removed part of the colon. Due to the delay in dealing with this problem, his client ended up with a disability as well as the inability to give birth in the future.
