Surgical Errors on the Rise

With the increasing number of surgical procedures being performed in the United States, it's not surprising to also see an increase in surgical errors. Errors occurring during surgery can take many forms, including:

  • Drug errors or medication overdoses
  • Anesthesia overdoses
  • Wrong surgical procedure, such as the removal of the wrong tissue, limb, or organ
  • Accidentally leaving a surgical instrument in the patient's body (including sponges, retractors, surgical towels). The CDC says that in the last few years, this type of medical error has injured almost 15,000 patients
  • Misreading a medical chart or medical history
  • Scalpel slips that cut into nearby organs, perforating bowels, a uterus, a bladder or a ureter
  • Improper medical clearance for surgery
  • Failure to diagnose and treat a post-operative infection
  • Wrong surgery for the correct diagnosis
  • Damage caused by a scheduled surgery, which can occur when a physician fails to inform a patient before the surgery about the risk of damage

Even the most experienced and skilled surgeons can commit a surgical error. While every case is unique and results can vary, our law firm's thorough investigation and dedication to provide the best legal service has contributed to our success in representing vicitims of surgical accidents.
