Surgical instrument left behind in woman

Some stories of physician negligence almost defy belief. And yet the same kinds of stories happen all over, from Huntington, West Virginia to Huntington Beach, California. The latest example of a jaw-dropping medical error happened to a woman who went into an outpatient surgical facility in April for common gynecological procedures called uterine ablation and tubal ligation.

Her career stretched from the 1950s until her sudden death nearly two years ago. Comedian Joan Rivers made generations of Americans laugh with her cutting wit and self-deprecating humor.

It's a little more than a five-hour drive due north of Huntington to get to Ohio's Lucas County.

Back in the early 1990s, she had a medical condition which resulted in a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.
