Today’s hospitals are often understaffed and try to move patients through surgery quickly. This increases the rate of surgical errors which can range from minor to fatal.
A variety of surgery errors lead to injuries and medical malpractice lawsuits:
- Injuring a nerve during surgery
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Leaving surgical equipment inside a patient
- Incision Errors
- Wrongful amputation
A surgical mistake can result in huge medical bills, corrective follow-up procedures and time away from work. In some cases, the patient’s health may never be the same.
