Sometimes surgery is necessary to cure an illness and we put our lives in the hands of the surgeons and medical professionals who perform that surgery. Things can go wrong during surgery, sometimes from negligence on the part of the doctor, nurses, surgical assistants or hospital, and you shouldn't have to bear the consequences of that negligence.
Your Surgeon's Negligence Shouldn't Affect the Rest of Your Life
Errors on the part of your surgeon and his or her team or by the hospital staff as you are healing can cause serious damage to you. Some of the mistakes that have been made in surgery include:
- Incomplete pre-operation planning
- Surgery on the wrong part of the body
- Anesthesia errors
- Unnecessary surgery
- Incorrect incisions
- Nicking, cutting or damaging nearby organs and tissue
- Improperly sterilized equipment
- Surgical instruments, supplies or other foreign objects left inside the body
None of these things should happen, but they do and the doctors, medical staff and hospital may try to blame them on some extenuating factor. As a patient, this is a violation of your rights. Your life shouldn't be disrupted because someone else was negligent, especially when it is life altering or even life threatening.
