After a surgery to remove a benign tumor from her stomach, Mary Harber experienced severe stomach pain that put her in the emergency room. After discovering that 8 inch forceps were left in her abdomen during surgey, Ms. Harber underwent another surgery that required removing part of her intestine. According to the article, Richard Mooney, MD performed the original erroneous surgery as well as the corrective surgery. In this case, a health information system knowledge base/expert would help ensure medical records are complete, validate audit trails against records, and gain a deeper understanding of discrepancies. Medical malpractice litigation support services can assist in identifying all types of discovery, so nothing is left on the table.
