Which surgery left the tourniquet? Doctors and patients have different opinions, in fact, it is not difficult to identify
In June last year, Ms. Zhu of Xu Changyuzhou had a cesarean section at Yuzhou Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital, and after giving birth, she always felt pain in her waist and abdomen, and she couldn’t even do her usual housework, which later developed into a problem even walking.
In August this year, Ms. Zhu went to Yuzhou City Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine for examination, and the woman’s position film showed that she had a hemostatic forceps about 15 centimeters long in her abdomen.
It is reported that Ms. Zhu has a total history of 3 surgeries, and underwent gastric surgery in a hospital in Zhengzhou in 2011; In 2015, he underwent cesarean section surgery in Lushan County People’s Hospital of Pingdingshan City; The last one was this cesarean section last June.
“We will definitely find the forceps if we lose it after surgery, and this forceps may also be left after the first cesarean section.” On September 1, Fan Huijun, director of obstetrics at Yuzhou Maternal and Child Health Hospital, denied Ms. Zhu’s claims in an interview with City Report.
“Combined with the patient’s symptoms and medical history, this is almost certainly caused by this operation.” A medical oncologist at Peking University Third Hospital said that although the patient’s symptoms were caused by medical malpractice and required a second operation, it did not cause serious consequences, so the amount of compensation may be very low.
On the morning of September 4, under the joint witness of the Yuzhou Health Commission, Yuzhou Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital, a local judicial laboratory in Xuchang and the media, the hemostatic forceps in Ms. Zhu’s body were successfully removed. “We negotiated to commission another forensic agency to identify the source of this hemostat. We will be fair and just, and return the truth. Guo Wenfeng of the medical administration department of the Yuzhou Municipal Health Commission said in an interview with “City Report”.
How to identify which hemostatic forceps is? Leng Zhe, co-founder of BGI’s iBo, told reporters that there are differences in the hemostatic forceps of various hospitals and batches. In addition to looking at the hemostats itself, you can also look at the pathological state of the tissues around the forceps. “The state of the surrounding tissue is also different between a hemostat that falls in for a few months and a few years after falling in. Assuming that there are indeed extreme cases, where the hospital pliers are all the same and closely spaced, it may be a little unclear. ”
Hemostats are a type of risk management event, and the chief surgeon and the itinerant nurse are responsible
In September 2018, Jiangsu Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring Center published “Analysis and Production Responsibility of Adverse Events from 101 Medical Device Formation Foreign Body Left Patients”, which statistically analyzed 101 cases of adverse events of medical device formation foreign body left in patients collected by Jiangsu Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring Center in 2013~2017.
The products involved in the 101 reports were counted according to the risk management category and name, and the most reports were related to Class III. medical devices, among which the source of foreign matter was broken needles (wires, threads, tubes). The risk management category is a category of products, including scalpel blades, hemostatic forceps, surgical scissors, etc.
Leng Zhe said that in order to avoid the occurrence of these problems, the operating room has a strict system, such as instrument nurses and itinerant nurses, to repeatedly count all instruments, including gauze, generally 2 to 4 times. In the event of an accident left behind by a surgical foreign body, everyone from the main knife to the hand washing nurse and the itinerant nurse will be held responsible.
