How Do Surgical Errors Happen?

A recent Johns Hopkins study found that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in America. In many hospitals where surgeries are performed, critical safety procedures may be missing or lax. This leads to unsafe conditions, which increase the risk of errors causing serious and lifelong consequences. Some unsafe conditions that can lead to surgical errors are:

  • Unsafe scheduling leading to overtired doctors and nurses
  • Substandard pre- and post-operative care
  • Unsafe infection prevention procedures
  • Poor surgical technique
  • Uninformed or unnecessary surgery

In the more drastic cases, a surgeon may leave a surgical instrument inside the body or cause unnecessary lacerations to body parts. If you believe that you or a loved one is suffering from a surgical error, talk with us to find out if your case may be eligible for money compensation.
