A hospital in Cleveland admitted that a donor kidney was transplanted into the wrong patient earlier this month, and two employees have been suspended over the major mistake.

University Hospitals of Cleveland said it was a miracle that the patient who received the kidney was also a match for the organ and is expected to recover.

The biggest mishap is that the other patient’s surgery is now delayed due to the error.

For a kidney transplant to be safe and successful, the patient and donor must match based on factors including their blood type.

If the blood types do not match, the organ could be rejected and cause serious complications.
