    Good golly, some surgical tech wasn't doing their job. Not to mention the surgeon's neglect. This should never happen. A surgical tech counts all instruments and sponges and is suppose to keep an acruate count. People were clearly sleeping on the job. That poor patient.

    Yikes! :eek:

    Why didn't the tech count all his or her instruments? And why didn't the surgeon ask if the counts were correct? Every surgeon I have been with in the OR asks if the counts are correct before closing up the patient.

    Scary, scary thing... :eek: :scared: :eek:
