A German woman preparing to undergo a liver transplant decided to take the organ for a final spin. She showed up to the hospital with a bottle of vodka.
A nurse discovered the bottle in the woman's bag and poured it out. Liver transplant patients are required to stay off the booze for six months leading up to the surgery. The patient informed the nurse that she had been hitting the bottle pretty hard for months before the operation, and despite that, doctors still performed the surgery.
Not surprisingly, the head of the transplants department at that hospital has been suspended and is being investigated for many wrongdoings. (The Register - UK)
