It is a terrible horror to have a scissors or some surgical thing like sponge, put into your during a surgery and stitched up with it. While some can be retrieved with less harm, some can simply lead people to death.
Doctors don’t forget them in your body willingly. They are in a deep concentration of getting the operation right and when they finish it successfully they are in a trance of happiness, which makes them forget some instrument into the body of the patient.
But it is not viable. Willingly or not willingly this is very much equal to a crime.
It was estimated that around 1.5 percent are dying annually with these tiny blunders that occur during a critical surgery.
And so they introduced a check list strategy, to cope up with these accidents. So surgeons will call out all the important items before the operation and once the operation is completed, they do that again.
Though this seems silly, it helped the death rate to fall from 1.5 percent to 0.8 percent.
