Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Retained surgical items (RSIs), formerly known as retained foreign objects, are a "Never Event" as it relates to patient events with harm. The exact incidence of RSIs is unknown but it is estimated to occur with an incidence of between 1:5000 to 1:18, 000 operations. RSIs can cause early complications immediately after the index operation or even years later. During this lecture we will review the incidence and characteristics of RSI, common errors that contribute to them, and methodologies to reduce their occurrence.
