I think that you mentioned the gauze was about 12cm long. This seems to be too long to be expected to dissolve. I hope that you kept the gauze and also have taken a photo of it as you may need this if a dispute arises. Your son could have choked on this gauze and it is a serious problem if it is not a dissolving gauze.You will have to take it up with the hospital.
