I know it seems that every mistake made by American surgeons is publicized but you haven't seen anything until you've gone to England. The Sun UK is running a series on the NHS and found:
A total of 722 objects were left inside patients following operations in 2008 alone - including pliers, scalpels, coils and swabs.
Check out the article here as the paper rips all the problems going on in that country's medical system. It is pretty impressive. I am not sure how we compare but I am willing to go on a limb and say we are better. The question is, are we better because we don't have socialized medicine or are we better because we are very litigious country?
