Women’s Hospital Expands Use of Patient Safety Devices
Woman’s Hospital is expanding the use of disposable cotton sponges, gauze, and towels fitted with tags that transmit signals to notify medical staff if there are objects left inside a patient’s body.
Medtronic Situate scanners will be installed in all hospital labor and delivery rooms, providing an additional level of protection in the rare event that items are left inside after surgery. Retained surgical items can lead to complications such as infections and obstructions and lead to additional surgery to retrieve them.
Situate sponges, gauze and towels are embedded with small radio frequency tags that can be detected after a medical procedure is complete by waving a wand.
