Why are Foreign Objects Left in Body Cavities?
When this type of error occurs, the simple answer is that an act of negligence has been committed. This error can be avoided with a simple double-checking procedure. Patients can suffer serious consequences if the surgical staff fails to account for any of the following items:
- Surgical implements
The Consequences of Surgical Error
The medical complications of a foreign object being left in the body cavity include:
- Intestinal blockage
- Increased risk of infection
- A second surgical procedure to correct the problem
- Severe pain
- Organ punctures (or other internal damage)
The medical costs associated with correcting these health problems can be very high, especially when added to what the patient has already paid for the initial procedure. The experience can also be a psychologically traumatic one, on top of the physical pain and extended recovery time.
