Woman’s Hospital expands use of patient safety devices
Woman’s Hospital is expanding the use of disposable cotton sponges, gauze and towels equipped with tags that transmit signals to let medical staff know if any items are left inside a patient’s body.
Medtronic Situate scanning devices will be in all of the hospital’s labor and delivery rooms, providing an extra level of protection in the rare case items are left inside after surgery. Retained surgical items can cause 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 finished by waving a wand.
