Who can perform surgical count?

For procedures where there is no cleaning nurse, the count should be done with the surgeon and the circulating nurse, and properly documented. Errors in surgical counting can result in the inadvertent retention of a surgical article, which is considered an unacceptable error due to the serious negative impact it can have on the health and safety of the patient.
