Surgical mistake

Common causes of surgical mistakes include:

  • Damage to parts of the body not being operated on
  • Discharge a patient prematurely
  • Disregard patient history
  • Failure to advise patient of every potential risk
  • Failure to follow up with patient post-surgery
  • Failure to recognize symptoms
  • Perform surgery on the wrong part of the body
  • Perform unnecessary surgery
  • Misread laboratory results
  • Negligently leave surgical tools in the patient

Investigating a Surgical Malpractice Case

With the life of an individual at stake during surgery, hospitals and surgical teams must take comprehensive precautions since no two surgeries are identical. Every surgery presents various, unique factors that require sufficient understanding and preparation prior to surgery. Failure to conduct such proper protocol can result in debilitating harm, that’s why our personal injury team can conduct a thorough investigation into all aspects of the surgery to determine if negligent actions caused the injuries our clients have suffered.

Common Causes of Surgical Mistakes:

  • Alcohol or Drug Use – To cope with the stress deriving from the pressure of surgery, surgeons may turn to alcohol or drugs
  • Fatigue – Due to the long work shifts, fatigue may result in mistakes
  • Incompetence – The surgeon may lack the skill necessary to perform a successful surgery
  • Lack of Preoperative Planning – Preparation is an important facet of surgery in order to avoid encountering mistakes
  • Poor Communication – Failure to communicate can result in a multitude of mistakes, such as using the wrong dosage of anesthesia or marking the wrong site for surgery
