Why is surgical count performed?

Counts are performed to account for all elements and to lessen the possibility of injury to the patient as a result of foreign body retention. Accurate, thorough counting procedures help promote optimal perioperative patient outcomes and demonstrate perioperative professionals' commitment to patient safety. Avoiding the inadvertent retention of surgical objects in a surgical wound requires clear communication between team members.
