WATERTOWN — More than 30 elective surgeries were called off at Samaritan Medical Center on Tuesday after hospital officials caught a mechanical error in its equipment used to sterlize medical tools.

Samaritan spokeswoman Krista A. Kittle said the decision to cancel the surgeries was made Monday night. Patients, typically given information the night before going to the hospital, were notified of the cancellations at that time.

Ms. Kittle said the hospital had resolved the issue, allowing it to return to full activity today.
