[Article in French]


During care follow-up, specifically local post-operative care, nurses closely monitor the surgical site both for healing and for local, regional or general risk of infection. In this context, they are on the front line of identifying and reporting any suspicious clinical conditions. We use the example of a patient who presented with textiloma following orthopaedic shoulder surgery.
