Medical Malpractice Lawsuit After Routine Surgery

Nelson Bailey went in for what he thought was going to be a routine surgery on a digestive disorder that had been causing him abdominal discomfort. But five months later after a lot of agony and pain in his stomach, Bailey went in to have x-rays and CT scans that revealed a sponge, the size of a washcloth, had been left behind. Bailey suffered as a direct result of medical negligence. He declined to have the sponge removed at the same hospital, he chose to instead go to Cleveland Clinic, where doctors also removed a portion of his intestine that was damaged by the sponge.
