Doctors in West Virginia refused to treat patients because of rising medical malpractice insurance premiums. A majority of doctors in most other states are cutting back on patient care because of rising malpractice insurance premiums. I have a riddle for those doctors: What'srepparttar 132610 difference between an auto mechanic and a medical surgeon? Answer: An auto mechanic doesn't leave his tools insiderepparttar 132611 object he worked on!

A study by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard School of Public Health found that surgeons ignorerepparttar 132612 standard practice of countingrepparttar 132613 surgical tools before and after an operation, resulting in tools being left insiderepparttar 132614 bodies of 1,500 people each year. The actual number of people with surgical tools left inside their bodies is much higher because hospitals are not required to report mistakes.

Surgeons leave clamps, electrodes, sponges and other surgical tools insiderepparttar 132615 bodies of people. In several cases, 11 inch metal retractors where left inside people. Sometimesrepparttar 132616 people didn't know that a surgical tool had been left inside their body. Many ofrepparttar 132617 tools where found in later surgeries.
