Hospital Staff Accidentally Leave Five Surgical Sponges in Patient Causing Severe Infection

Five 3" by 4" surgical sponges were left in this client's stomach while undergoing a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Due to a miscount by operating room nurses, the egregious mistake went unnoted until the client developed a severe infection as a result of the sponges. The client required a second surgery in order to remove the surgical sponges. The client filed a surgical malpractice claim with the help of Rosen Louik & Perry. This case settled for $170,000.00.
