His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has announced that he will undertake the treatment of the Emirati woman, 24, who slipped into coma during a botched surgery recently in Dubai.
According to reports, the father of the patient was contacted by officials from the Crown Prince Court and was told his daughter will be flown abroad for treatment.
The Emirati woman slipped into coma due to medical negligence that led to cardiac arrest and brain damage.
Reports mentioned that the anesthesiologist stepped out of the operation theatre to have a cigarette and coffee.
The surgeon allegedly continued performing the surgery and didn’t pay attention to the patient slipping into cardiac arrest.
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has barred 'First Med Day Surgery Centre Dubai' from carrying out any surgeries until the investigation is complete.

Septoplasty is the non-cosmetic surgical procedure that corrects difficulties to airflow arising from the displacement of the bone and cartilage that divides the nostrils, termed as “deviated septum”.

Set against a pristine white backdrop, French photographer Grégory POL’s exhibition at XPOSURE 2019, “Nord et Blanc” (North and White) was hard to miss. Especially the mysterious eyes of the snowy owl, which stare right into yours when you’re looking, and even seem to follow when you walk away from the picture.
