The parents of a newborn baby in Podgorica, Montenegro returned home from hospital to discover they had been given the wrong baby.

According to reports, the parents left the hospital thinking they were taking home their baby girl but quickly realised something was wrong. They discovered the mother and baby’s tag did not match. 

The hospital launched an investigation into the incident and blamed the blunder on a nurse who reportedly did not follow procedures. The hospital however released a statement, saying that the doctors and nurses who were on duty when the baby swap happened would face disciplinary measures.

“We would like to assure the public that all those responsible will be sanctioned”.

The director of the clinical centre in the area said there was no justification for the incident and that the investigation would aim to find out whether the infant had been swapped deliberately or by mistake.
