Surgical Errors Contribute To Medical Malpractice

05 May

Having a surgery can be a scary ordeal. The thought of being put to sleep and having someone work on your body is unsettling for many people. But in many cases it is necessary. When you go to the hospital, you expect a high level of professionalism and attention to detail. You trust your doctor, surgeon and other medical professionals know what they are doing. After all, your life literally is in their hands. One mistake could be catastrophic. Most times before a procedure — major or minor — the surgeon walks you through exactly what they are going to do. This is to make you feel a little more at ease. It is a great practice, and the majority of the time it does the trick. You are mentally ready to go under the knife. But sometimes, it is not the big things that can cause the most damage, but the little errors. Errors that can have a lasting effect on your life, or worse, be deadly.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of surgical errors, you need to contact a medical malpractice attorney right away. There could be damages that have not manifested themselves yet, and you want to make sure you are taken care of. Thousands of cases of surgical errors are reported each year; most of them minor. However, a great number have been fatal.

Some of the most common surgical errors include:

  • Operating or amputating the wrong body part – Every year, many people experience this horrible tragedy. They go into surgery for operation on one body part, but for some reason, the surgeon works on something completely different. It is more devastating if the procedure calls for an amputation.
  • Instruments being left in patients – This is more common than people may think. A surgeon is done with the procedure and sews up his patient. The patient goes home and feels off kilter. Upon visiting the hospital yet again, they realize the doctor has left an instrument inside them. This can range from mild discomfort to death, depending on the instrument left inside.

If you have experienced surgical errors, or have a loved one who has lost their life due to it, give Jed Kurzban a call.
