Suit: Dentist left drill bit in Fla. woman's head
TAMPA, Fla. – A lawsuit claims a dentist's drill bit was left in a Tampa woman's head for nearly a year. The lawsuit said Donna Delgao's surgeon left an inch-long piece of steel in a wound after dental surgery in 2008. The tool lodged in her right maxillary sinus. It was only removed 11 months later by another surgeon.
The lawsuit says Delgao suffered nosebleeds, sinus infections and dizziness. Her attorney said she also may suffer side effects, including nickel poisoning.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and a jury trial...
