How Are Surgical Errors Defined?
Surgical errors make up some of the most frequently reviewed medical malpractice cases. Surgical errors can range from errors administrating and monitoring anesthesia, the type and length of incision, the surgery being performed itself and the inadvertent cutting or injuring of nerves, organs, or other vital body parts. Our attorneys for surgical errors point out that it even includes mistakes in post-operative care.
Improper administration of anesthesia can cause permanent brain damage. The wrong type of incision could cause extensive complications. Surgical errors also pertain to equipment, such as prolonged use of the bypass machine during heart surgery, which can have devastating consequences.
Often, depending on the seriousness and permanence of the injury, it can be determined whether or not the medical care was insufficient. For example, during surgery, a nerve might be injured by the surgeon. This can occur in a few different ways including the compression of the nerve by a surgical instrument used by the surgeon or by over stretching of the nerve during the surgery.
