Preventable surgical mistakes continue in the United States

Although surgical mistakes are fairly rare, statistics show that completely preventable mistakes continue throughout the United States. For example, one out of 100,000 surgeries involves a wrong site surgical error, where the surgeon operates on the incorrect body part or the wrong area of a patient's body. Sometimes, these errors involve surgeries on the wrong person. Even more distressing is the fact that one out of 10,000 surgeries involve a doctor forgetting something inside the patient's body, like a surgical tool or a medical sponge.
