Pryers secured compensation for Mr S after a surgical drain was negligently left in his abdomen for over a year.

Mr S underwent surgery under the care of the Defendant Hospital Trust and post operatively required a surgical drain to allow serous fluid to drain away from the surgical site.

Days after surgery the drain broke and Mr S reported this to his nursing team, providing them with the detached drain parts.

Unbeknown to Mr S, a 30 centimetre piece of drain and tubing had retracted and been retained in his abdomen. The nursing staff failed to check that all of the drain was present. They failed to arrange for a surgeon to examine Mr S and for an xray to check that no drain parts had been inadvertently left behind.

As a result, the large drain part remained in Mr S’s abdomen causing him pain and discomfort.

It was not until a routine scan over a year later that the drain was identified.

Mr S required surgery to remove the drain. Fortunately no lasting damage was caused and he made a good recovery.

With Pryers’ representation, Mr S received £2,750 in compensation.
