In recent weeks Hong Kong has been abuzz with the news of a concerning trend increasingly seen at the city’s hospitals. According to recent articles in leading news outlets, Hong Kong’s surgeons are leaving more foreign objects inside surgical patients. This, in turn, has prompted accusations of wide-spread problems within the city’s medical misconduct procedures leading to a wider debate on the quality of Hong Kong’s surgical healthcare offerings.
Seven patients who had surgical procedures performed during the first quarter of 2014 had foreign objects left in their bodies by operating room teams. From drainage tubes left in a patient’s abdomen to a drill bit which was snapped off inside another patient’s hip, there have been more foreign bodies left inside surgical patients so far in 2014 than any other year since 2010.
