Medical Intern Injects Olive Oil Into Appendix Patient

`Instead of injecting an elderly patient with antibiotics, he shot her up with olive oil. The woman was in the hospital to get her appendix removed.

Officials at Steyr Hospital said vials of the medicine and oil had been left at the bedside and the intern picked up the wrong one. The olive oil was supposed to have been used for a massage.’
