This device might stop some of the screw ups in surgical procedures. Its sad that they need something like this to prevent, removing the wrong organ or preforming the wrong surgery!

WASHINGTON - A radio frequency tag that patients can affix like a bandage to ensure doctors perform the right surgery on the right person won government approval Friday.

The tag, manufactured by SurgiChip Inc. of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., aims to prevent wrongful surgeries that records show kill thousands of patients a year.

If the hospitals were more careful in the first place errors like this would never happen. But with Dr.s and nurse's overworked and understaffed this may prove to be a Godsend!
