Insalud, the major health authority in Spain, has been warned to take better care of its medical equipment. The warning, made by the high court, comes after a patient won a damages settlement when a retractor screw fell off during surgery and was left unobserved in her abdominal cavity for a year. The high court said that it was the authority's responsibility to check and maintain its equipment properly, reports the Diario Medico newspaper.
