    You're right. One mistake out of millions of cases should definitely keep you from doing something that could save people once you've passed.

    Wait, what's even more rare that a mistake like that is her waking up just in the nick of time. In most cases (if this happens) I imagine the patient never wakes up and just dies from the operation.

    She heavily overdosed. Pretty obvious she wanted to die anyway.

    Well did they take her organs when she committed suicide?

    She went ahead and killed herself 2 years later anyway, so I'm pretty sure that was what it was.
