A patient has had the wrong tooth pulled out during an operation at Cornwall's biggest hospital.

It is one of three so-called "never" events in less than a month at Treliske.

The second involved an incorrect implant and the other was a case of so-called "wrong site surgery."

That could mean the wrong limb, wrong knee, wrong patient.

Treliske says safety is its top priority and any never event is unacceptable.

Hospital bosses say every time something like this happens there is a rigorous investigation into what has gone wrong.

In a statement, the Royal Cornwall said: "Patient safety is our top priority and we are clear that any never event is unacceptable.

"Never events and serious incidents are always subjected to a rigorous investigation process to ensure RCHT and, where appropriate, the wider NHS learns from any incident and makes any changes to practice needed to minimise the risk of it happening again."
