    Health authorities in Surin in Thailand's north-east have finally admitted that the delivery team at a hospital left two pieces of gauze inside the birth canal of a 16 year old girl after she had a baby.



    The patient had been featured on a Facebook page for those seeking justice from the health authorities but at first the hospital refused to admit any mistake.



    The new mother was checked seven days after the delivery but nothing was found to be wrong.



    However, after 45 days she had severe swelling of the womb area and scarring.



    Two pieces of gauze were subsequently found inside her.



    Dr Phuwadech Surakhote of the Surin department of Public Health said Monday that he was sorry for the incident and procedures were being put in place to ensure that it did not happen again.



    The health authorities have been in touch with the mother to address the situation.



    He said that normally after a birth stitching is done and gauze is used to stem blood flow.



    This should have been removed but was clearly not done.
