Causes of Medical Malpractice Concerning Anesthesia
Poor or faulty administration of anesthesia can result in injuries ranging from a stroke or heart attack to brain injury or a collapsed lung. Each application of anesthesia must be carefully prepared. If it isn’t, patients can be faced with permanent injuries, extensive medical bills, loss of work, and more.
Common errors involved in anesthesia include the following:
- Failing to examine a patient’s medical history
- Failing to conduct a proper pre-anesthetic physical evaluation
- Administering the wrong dosage
- Failing to warn the patient about food or alcohol restrictions surrounding the procedure
- Failing to properly monitor a patient’s vital signs
- Improperly intubating a patient
- Defective or missing equipment
Simple mistakes can lead to lifelong injuries for patients. In order to prove that a faulty administration of anesthesia took place, it is imperative that patients retain an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
