(CNN) – An elderly man had the wrong leg amputated during an operation, an Austrian hospital admitted.

The 82-year-old man was due to undergo surgery on his left leg this Tuesday, but due to a “human error” his right leg was amputated above the knee, the Freistadt Clinic reported on Friday.

The incident came after a hospital worker mistakenly placed a preoperative mark on the wrong leg, the hospital said.

“It was (Thursday) morning, while the standard dressing change was being performed, that the tragic failure caused by human error was discovered,” said a statement from the clinic, located near the Austrian border with the Czech Republic. .

The Freistadt Clinic blamed human failure for the “tragic mistake.”

The patient suffered from “numerous illnesses” and the ailments affected both of his legs.

After the mistake, the man needed to also have his corresponding leg amputated above the knee.

‘A disastrous combination of circumstances caused amputate the patient’s right leg instead of the left, “says the hospital statement.

The man’s family has been informed and offered psychological support. The hospital has also sent the details of the incident to the regional prosecutor.

“We also want to affirm that we will do everything possible to clarify the case, investigate all internal processes and analyze them critically. All necessary measures will be taken immediately, “the statement said.

The surgeon involved is not currently working, at her own request, he added.
