Surgical Errors = Medical Malpractice

Surgeons, surgical nurses, recovery room staff, anesthesiologists, and all medical providers involved in surgery are required to exercise a high standard of care. When they do not and an injury occurs, patients or surviving families may be able to file medical or hospital malpractice claims to obtain damages and compensation. In many cases, the patient will require extensive medical treatment to correct the injury. In others, no correction is possible and the patient’s life is forever changed. In yet other instances, patients die because of medical negligence in the operating room; their families may be able to file wrongful death claims.

Some examples of surgical errors include:

  • Improper sterilization of equipment resulting in infection
  • Operating on the wrong body part, wrong organ or wrong side of the body
  • Nicks or perforations of adjacent organs leading to uncontrolled bleeding
  • Unnecessary surgery leading to injuries or permanent body changes
  • Surgical equipment, sponges and other foreign objects left in the patient

An attorney can advise you about your injury and whether you are eligible to file a claim.
