Examples of Surgical Error

If your surgeon or nurse made an error during your surgical procedure, he or she is not necessarily liable for that error. If, however, your surgeon provided you with substandard care that resulted in an error causing injury to you, you may have a medical malpractice case and be able to pursue compensation from the appropriate parties. As a general rule, surgeons and nurses are expected to provide you with services adhering to a certain standard of care. This standard of care essentially is what any other reasonable health care professional would do in the same circumstances with the same training and experience.

Take a look at some examples of surgical error:

  • Damaging a nerve during surgery
  • Administering the wrong amount of anesthesia or other medication
  • Performing an incision on the wrong part of the body
  • Forgetting a piece of surgical equipment and leaving it inside a patient
  • Operating on the incorrect body part
  • Operating on the incorrect patient

These sorts of errors may be caused by a number of preventable reasons, such as inadequate training, insufficient pre-operative planning, poor communication, inadequate labeling, fatigue or neglect. While the errors are as varied as the people involved, a level of safety and care is a patient’s right. If you have been injured due to a surgical error, don’t hesitate to contact our Virginia surgical error lawyers!
