The family of the patient is suing the medical center for $120,000 for the damage, because the patient went through another two extra operation so remove all 16 left items in his body.

According to Annette Corinth the family’s lawyer, “I hope the hospital will settle but otherwise the family are prepared to go all the way and sue in court. The family of the deceased spent lots of money on care, medicines and reconstruction of their home to look after this man. There has been gross negligence here which most probably had led to complications and possibly a quicker *death.*”

Though the hospital denies the accusation about their surgeon who left 16 items in a body of a German man, they insist that the items must have got into his body after the operation and other medical procedure but not left intentionally by the unidentified surgeon.
