A woman in England had been in and out of the hospital for nine months with a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome. On her last visit, she was told she was about three months pregnant, and sent home. Three hours after that, she gave birth to a nearly-nine pound baby.
I don't know if the incompetence was just stupid staff, or if it was a staff winnowed down and made careless by too much work concentrated on too few people, but to miss a pregnancy for the entire nine months? Wow. That's a whole new definition of the term "oblivious."
