New Jersey Surgical Error Attorneys & Surgical Malpractice Lawyers
Surgeons have a tremendous responsibility to their patients. There are few moments where a patient is more dependent on their physician providing the exact care that is needed than when a patient is being operated on. Given how important it is that surgeons do everything correctly, it can be surprising how often surgeons make mistakes that can endanger their patients’ health.
Surgical errors are a common enough phenomenon that many hospitals have adopted surgery checklists. These checklists are simple lists which are designed to ensure that all appropriate steps are taken as part of a given procedure. This focus on preventing errors, unfortunately, does not completely eliminate them.
Common surgical errors include:
- Operating on the wrong patient
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Nicking or perforating a nerve, blood vessel or organ
- Leaving a sponge or other material or instruments inside a patient
- Amputating the wrong limb
- Anesthesia errors
- Failing to provide the care necessary to prevent post-surgical infection
