A New Defense to Foreign Object Cases

Comments Off

You would think that if a surgeon leaves a sponge or towel in a patient during surgery that there couldn’t be any real defense to the medical malpractice case that is brought.

In the “what will they think of next” category, some Cleveland Clinic doctors are defending the medical malpractice case on the theory that the towel left in side the (now dead) patient’s body, “prolonged her life.”

Ok, Ok, and they say plaintiff’s make silly arguments in cases.

The Plain Dealer has this amazing medical malpractice story.
