RI surgeon operates on wrong side of man's head.

After the surgeon drilled two holes in the left side of the patient's skull and found no bleeding, the procedure was repeated on the right side, and the blood drained. Except for the incisions, the patient has so far suffered no ill effects from the error, according to hospital spokeswoman Jane Bruno.
