Leaving Foreign Objects During Surgery

There is no excuse for surgeons to leave foreign objects in your body during surgery. An X-ray image of a sponge, knife, scissors, or rag left in someone’s body after an operation is a classic example of medical malpractice.

Modern operating rooms can be busy places. Beeping monitors and multiple assisting technicians can lead to an environment in which otherwise careful surgeons may make a mistake such as leaving a foreign object in the body after sewing up the surgical incision.
