Foreign Object Left in Patient
Surgical teams should have strict procedures
The discovery of a foreign object in a patient after surgery will very often necessitate a further operation to remove it and can lead to more serious complications, such as septic shock or puncture damage to internal organs. Surgical teams should have procedures in place to ensure that all tools, dressings and other materials are accounted for at the end of an operation to ensure that none are left in the patient.
