This article focuses on common general surgical Never Events (NEs). The researchers analysed data from the National Health Service (NHS) in England and found a total of 797 general surgical NEs identified under three main categories: wrong-site surgery, retained items post-procedure and wrong implant/prosthesis. With this research, the authors aimed to raise awareness of these common themes with the hope it may help create better safety standards and safeguards and reduce the incidence of NEs.
