Article Excerpt:

It may seem hard to believe, but surgeons often leave their tools on the wrong side of the skin after performing a surgery. Clamps, scalpels and other tools of the trade have been found in people, but the most common is undoubtedly sponges, the gauze pads that are used to sop up blood. Sponges get left in patients, an action earning them the term “retained sponge,” an estimated 4,000 times each year. The effects can be very serious as the sponge can cause a host of problems, including attaching to organs and causing infections that could be deadly.

There are procedures in place to ensure that this type of thing does not occur, but let’s face it, the operating room can be a frantic place at times and surgeons, nurses and other members of the team are still just people and capable of mistakes.

SurgiCount Medical, Inc., the wholly-owned operating subsidiary of Patient Safety Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: PSTX), is establishing a large footprint in the health care industry to help put an end to retained sponges. The company is the owner and marketer of The Safety-Sponge System, a real-time, three-part system that utilizes sponges, bar codes, software and a small computer to keep track of the number of sponges used during a procedure. Clinical studies have proven the system to improve patient outcomes and reduce preventable costs.
