And they wonder why we are paranoid of people in the medical field.
SYDNEY, Australia - A Sydney woman demanded an explanation Tuesday from a hospital where a pair of scissors were left in her abdomen after surgery and
said she planned to sue.
Pat Skinner, 69, had part of her colon removed at Sydney's St. George Hospital in May 2001. But she said that she continued to suffer intense pain in
her abdomen for months after the operation.
Eventually, she demanded doctors x-ray her abdomen. They did and discovered the 6.7-inch pair of scissors, which were removed in October 2002.

I know this suff happens all the time, But what the hell can anyone say that can explain these things?
How the hell can this happen?
I can deal with pilotics and not being able to trust our leaders,
I can even deal with crap from my ex wife.
But when I am sick and have to think about surgery, its crap like this that makes me lose trust in the people who will be working on me, or any loved
If we can't trust our doctors and nurses we may as well just stay home and die.
There is no exuse AT ALL for this.
And you seem to hear reports like this everyday.
What can we do to find the best people in the medical field?
People we can trust enough to cut our flesh while we are sleeping??
This is really scarey.
You never know you may be the next man or woman they work on!
