Surgical errors can happen any time
Surgery has inherent risks that cannot be eliminated. Even during minor procedures, there is a chance that infection can occur. While not all risks can be eliminated, errors committed during surgery due to negligence or incompetence are dangerous and inexcusable. If records are lost or different patients’ records are confused, patients may be subjected to the wrong surgical procedure altogether. Common errors committed during surgery that can cause harmful injuries to patients include:
- Leaving objects behind in patients
- Failure to adequately sanitize surgical instruments
- Damage to neighboring blood vessels, organs, or nerves
- Errors in administering anesthesia
- Wrong-site surgery
- Use of outdated or incorrect surgical procedures
