Doctors at Elmhurst Medical Center left a 10-inch breathing tube in a Queens man’s body — and didn’t realize the mistake or retrieve it for an astounding 30 more years, according to a lawsuit.
“I just feel like … a little angry. Just for the simple fact that they left this inside of me,” the former patient, Rene Remache, 39, told The Post. “It could have been worse than what the outcome was. I thank God I am still here. I have a beautiful daughter that I might not have been raising.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The twisted tale began when Remache fell out of a second-story window in April 1989 when he was just 6 years old. At the time he was living in Woodside with his grandparents who immigrated from Ecuador.
The report explains that the child was taken to the hospital with a skull fracture and placed on a ventilator and a breathing tube. It is now believe he may have swallowed some or all of the device while at the Elmhurst Hospital.
Remache experienced stomach ailments over the years, often receiving treatment again at Elmhurst amid various trips to the ER, but no test was ever performed that would have discovered the tube left inside him.
During a family trip to Mexico in 2019, Remache felt ill again and went to a Mexican clinic, who said he had bronchitis and sent him home with antibiotics.
Back in New York , a CAT scan at Mt. Sinai Medical Center finally revealed the old tube resting inside him, and it was removed by surgeons at Maimonides Medical Center on June 24, 2019. He then had a file a lawsuit to force the hospital to give him the device so he could use it for evidence in a lawsuit against Elmhurst.
