Los Angeles Times, March 3, 2008
St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, CA, is under state investigation for mistakenly doing knee-repair surgery on a patient's good knee. The incident is the third "wrong-site" procedure to occur at the hospital since January 2006. The California Department of Public Health investigation marks the second time in a few months that a well-known Southern California hospital has come under public scrutiny for medical mistakes.
