Today I was working OT and when my relief came in my scrub nurse and I counted sponges, sutures ect. and found that our suture count was incorrect. We counted 18 sutures, 18 suture packs but 19 were written down. I went through the garbage and found 18 suture wrappers. I guess I made a mistake and wrote the wrong number down when I gave sutures up to the sterile field. The team was told about it and was happy with the search. I understand that this would make for an incorrect count, and that a report would need to be written up as things get lost. My problem, besides feeling bad that I left a report for the relieving nurse, is the scrub nurse seemed angry with me. I'm not perfect, it was a busy case, and I made a mistake. It happens.
What would you all do in this situation?
