No Thing Left Behind

No Thing Left Behind, a surgical safety project, focuses on helping hospitals, surgeons, perioperative care nurses, and patients work together to ensure that surgical instruments used in an operation (such as sponges and needles) are not left behind in the patient. They developed an easy 1-2-3 prevention method: 1) use radio-opaque items and perform a methodical inspection before closing the wound; 2) allow time for counting surgical tools; and 3) x-ray when there is a discrepancy.
