New SurgiCount Safety-Sponge® System Implemented at LHP Hospital Group Facilities to Help Prevent Surgical Errors
Date:9/24/2013

Plano, TX (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

LHP Hospital Group, Inc. (“LHP”) and SurgiCount Medical, Inc. announce implementation of a new system designed to reduce a common surgical error. Headquartered in Plano, Texas, LHP is a privately held healthcare leader established to provide essential capital and expertise to not-for-profit hospitals and hospital systems. The SurgiCount Safety-Sponge® System, being implemented at LHP facilities, is the market leading solution to reduce incidences of retained surgical sponges.

Retained foreign bodies are estimated to represent up to 49.8% of all reported surgical “never events” (medical errors that should never occur) with surgical sponges representing the vast majority of items unintentionally retained. The system is clinically proven to improve patient safety and reduce healthcare costs.

"We applaud LHP for taking this proactive step toward continuing to offer their patients the very best standards of care available. They join a growing list of government, community and teaching facilities successfully utilizing the SurgiCount Safety-Sponge® System to improve their patient outcomes, reduce their preventable costs and protect their reimbursement revenues," stated Brian E. Stewart, President and CEO of Patient Safety Technologies, Inc.

"After thorough diligence on available retained sponge prevention solutions, we concluded the SurgiCount Safety-Sponge® System is the safest, easiest and most complete retained sponge solution available. We are excited to get the system implemented in our hospitals and offer our patients and staff the benefits of its use," said Andrew Montgomery, Vice President of Supply Chain at LHP.
