Medical Mistake: Surgeon Operates on the Wrong Eye of a 4-Year-Old Boy


"We have a critical incident team that will be responding to it, that will be interviewing all of our staff in the operating room as well as private practice physicians in the operating room that were involved," Morgan told KATU. "Our hope is to never have it happen again in any of our hospitals."

Goodman is not a Legacy employee, but she was using their facilities to perform the operation on Jesse.

Tasha Gaul does not think Goodman is a bad person, but she wants to get the word out about what happened to make sure this does not happen again to another child – or their parents.

"I just can't stress the fact that we're doing this just to make this public," she said. "A lot of people think we're doing this for money, and that's not the case. We're just doing this for our kid. We're speaking out for our kid because nobody else can."
