Surgical mistakes occur at an astonishing rate in hospitals across the country. While emphasis is placed on egregious errors such as amputation of the wrong limb, widespread medical malpractice causes surgical mistakes on a daily basis. Nerves can be hit during surgery causing long term disability, organs can be damaged, vital signs can be monitored improperly, equipment can fail, and incisions and sutures can be made improperly.
Medical malpractice that causes surgical mistakes can include:
- Leaving tools or other objects inside the patient
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Procedural mistakes
- Incorrectly administering anesthesia
