i was circulating today.
i honestly forgot to do a final count in a vaginal hysterectomy case.
the scrub nurse, who did not call my attention to do a last count, i assume forgotten it or just did not care at all.
i am stressed at home right now and there is nothing i can do.
although the 1st count with full instrument count was done, i still feel uneasy and i feel so irresponsible today.
im only 6 months in the OR and i am scared of law suits! the scrub nurse was a senior nurse, she should know better. it is a team work though... sigh*
