Patient wakes up alone in dentist's office

A Brooklyn woman is suing for medical malpractice after she woke up from general anethesia and found herself locked and forgotten inside an oral surgery center in Brooklyn, N.Y., WCBS-TV reported recently.

Ramona Mercado, who had gone in to get a wisdom tooth pulled told WCBS-TV that she was "terrified" when she found herself in the situation and "threw up from over exhaustion of crying."

She was locked in the center for about 40 minutes before a call to 911 got her out.
