Common Causes of Surgical Errors
Sometimes honest mistakes are made in the operating room. Unfortunately,
those mistakes often have huge consequences for the person lying on the
operating table. In other instances, however, there are circumstances
that can contribute to surgical error that call for legal action. From
breakdowns in communication between the staff and surgeon to lack of qualifications
or concentration, a wide range of issues can lead to these errors.
The following can lead to devastating mistakes and medical complications
- Performing unnecessary procedures
- Misreading or misinterpreting lab results
- Poor decisions under pressure or in response to emergencies
- Failing to review patient history
- Negligently going through an operation
- Improper use of surgical tools or equipment
- Incorrect installation of a medical device
- Anesthesia errors
- Accidental damage to surrounding muscles or tissues
These errors, even the ones that are seemingly minor, can lead to brain
damage, prolonged infection, loss of limb, expensive follow-up surgeries, and even
wrongful death in severe cases. Such injuries, caused by the negligence of medical professionals,
should not go unnoticed. Get in touch with an experienced
personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to take action after a devastating surgical eror.
