Leaving a surgical item behind after a procedure is a never event. This retrospective cross-sectional study sought to identify risk factors and outcomes of retained foreign bodies. Nearly one-third of incidents involving retained foreign objects were reported after gastrointestinal procedures. Risk of retained surgical items was highest in teaching hospitals.
