Surgical and Medical Errors
Surgical and medical errors are, perhaps, what most people envision when they think about medical malpractice. Sometimes these errors are obvious, such as when a surgeon leaves one of his surgical instruments or a sponge in a patient’s body cavity after surgery. However, other times surgical and medical errors can be more subtle, such as when brain damage results when physicians and other caregivers fail to properly monitor oxygen levels during surgery, or when an infection develops from the failure to use sterile procedures. When a person is injured because doctors or other caregivers fail to provide healthcare services properly in connection with any medical examination or procedure, the potential for a medical malpractice lawsuit exists. It is important to remember that the list of potentially responsible medical practitioners includes healthcare insurers, hospitals, nurses, chiropractors, therapists, paramedics, ambulance companies, home care nursing companies and many others.
