Wrong site surgery (WSS) includes surgery at the wrong site or side, performing the wrong procedure, or surgery on the wrong patient. WSS is preventable, and yet despite the implementation of protocols and checklists to reduce their occurrence, shockingly occurs more than 50 times a week in the US. Tragically, WSS is often devastating to the patient, nursing staff, surgeon, and facility involved.
