Dental malpractice action brought against an oral surgeon alleging that the oral surgeon fell below the standard of care in not taking steps to determine that the Penrose drain he temporarily placed in the patient’s mouth, following surgery for a dental abscess, fell into the wound rather than out of the patient’s mouth. Following surgery, the oral surgeon had the patient admitted overnight to the hospital and saw him for follow up in his office the next day. The patient at that time reported to the oral surgeon that the drain was missing or had fallen out. There was no further pain and the patient healed from the dental surgery. However, the drain had not fallen out, and over time it migrated to the patient’s neck and remained there unknown to Plaintiff for over two years, until he later experienced pain and a mass in his neck which, when removed and dissected, revealed the presence of the Penrose drain.
