Nice Save Angela!

Awesome work by Angela Land, who was commended recently about her attention to detail during a surgical procedure.  Angela noticed that a retractor listed as having 4 screws actually had 6.  At the end of the procedure one of the screws was not accounted for, and Angela’s earlier correction of how many screws there should have been helped make sure the team knew a screw had to be found.  The team followed standard work for incorrect counts and the missing screw was located. The case concluded with a proper final count of supplies/equipment.  Great work Angela, who was an example of several safe behaviors: paying attention to detail, having a questioning attitude, working together with your team, following the rules.
