First off,,,,,I have got to say,,, sm9796,,I LOVE the terms that you use!!
I want to change our lounge into a tea room.......and I am going to try to use the word Quiver for the holster for our bovie. I Love it!!!
Anyway, two sponges I can remember, lost....no...temporarily misplaced
A Raytec in the back of the throat during a tonsil, found it by doing a direct laryngoscopy.
Also had trouble locating a regular gauze 4x4 while putting on a pelvic external fixator.
Rarely had done one of these, and with it only being a stab incision, we figured no problem...WRONG.
Thank goodness we did count them first, when we couldn't account for one, we figured it was in the incision. Doc of course, said no way, but the tech wouldn't give up and found it tucked in the corner of one of these tiny incisions!!
We did a laparoscopy on a lady with pelvic pain one time,,,there was a shiny Kelly clamp if I remember, you could see the hospital's name (not our) stamped right on the side!! Left in there following a C-Section a couple years earlier.
Never say "we can't lose that!"
