More You Should Know About Retained Instruments:
Doctors tend to use the word “retained” to describe objects inadvertently left behind inside the bodies of patients, often in their abdominal cavities, after surgery. These foreign objects can cause great harm to patients, including infection or sepsis.
A key issue in these cases is the legal responsibility of the surgeon, often a private physician, as opposed to the nursing staff, often employed by a hospital. The surgeon is generally in charge of the surgical procedure, but often delegates to staff the requirement to count sponges, to make sure that all are properly accounted for before the surgery is concluded, and the patient closed up.
If you have been harmed in this fashion by a surgical team, please contact us today if we can help you with your case. You may call our office at 800.344.5297 or contact us using the form on our website.
