Sponge Left Inside Client Causes Permanent Injuries


Litigation Type - Hospital Negligence

Client Injury - Numerous Infections, Permanent Injuries

Our client underwent surgery to prevent a cancerous bladder condition.  According to his surgeon, the surgery was a success and he was released from the hospital 8 days later. Approximately three weeks after the surgery, our client was re-admitted with severe fever and vomiting. CT scans were obtained and showed that a laparotomy pad or sponge had been left inside our client's body cavity during the original surgery.

A second surgery was done to remove the lap sponge and drain the abscess.  Following that surgery, our client developed a number of infections and suffered permanent and ongoing injuries.

Harry Sieben pursued a medical negligence claim against the treating facility and received a settlement for our client in the amount of $375,000.
