Do most operating rooms count(all instruments and implants) on these procedures or is it policy to just xray after the procedure?

I have worked in lots of ORs and I have never counted instruments and implants. You would be there all day counting all of those implant bits. We always just shoot an xray. Most surgeons want an xray afterwards anyway.
