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 for patients:

  • 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

Such injuries, caused by the negligence of medical professionals, should not go unnoticed.
