Bizarre story about things left in patients after surgery–from the Canadian Institute for Health Information.
In fact—-a new survey says Alberta actually has a pretty bad track record on this sort of thing.
For every 100-thousand Albertans who had surgery between 2014 and last year—more than 13 discovered SOMETHING was left inside them.
Scissors, clips, sponges—-pretty much anything that might have been on the surgical tray….
Thats higher than the national average–and three times higher than many other countries.
