Doctor’s Cell Phone Left in Womb

Doctor’s Cell Phone Left in Womb

A Jordanian woman is feeling much better after having the cell phone her doctor left behind in her womb removed, her family reports. The accident discovered when she returned home after having a Caesarian section, has been making the rounds of the web as yet another example of doctors leaving equipment behind when they close patients up. Her parents reported that she was feeling pain and then they noticed that her stomach was vibrating. I suppose they should be grateful it didn’t start playing pop song ring tones as well.

Phone Left In Womb By Surgeon

When X-rays revealed that a foreign object was in her womb, the hospital had surgeons remove it. That was when it was discovered that the object was her doctor’s cell phone. No mention was made of how large a phone or if it was a flip-phone versus a smartphone. No matter the size though, this kind of forgetfulness is inexcusable. While stories circulate from time to time of various objects being left inside a patient after an operation, this is the first anyone has heard of having a doctor’s cell phone left behind.

Call For Government’s Resignation

When the Health Minister dismissed the story as “baseless and fabricated” there was even more outcry. A member of parliament in response called for the government to resign and new elections to be held. But regardless of whether the Jordanian government should fall due to a doctor’s careless handling of what is these days a routine operation, the question remains. What was a doctor’s cell phone doing in the surgery room in the first place?
