The family of a now-deceased man is suing TriStar Centennial hospital, claiming a surgeon left a needle inside his body and was unable to retrieve it in a second operation, The Tennessean reports. The man died a month after the surgery, with his health deteriorating after the needle was lost in his body. The lawsuit alleges that the man suffered in his final month and describes his death as “painful, unnecessary and wrongful.”
