Types of Surgical Errors

It is essential for doctors and nurses to be attentive and responsive during every step of a surgical procedure. Because surgeries are so complicated, complete focus is crucial. Negligence by any person who is involved in administering a surgery or negligence at any step of the surgical process can result in injury to the patient.

Surgical errors may involve negligence during preparation to complete a procedure. For example, negligence in testing a patient, providing medication, training surgeons and nurses, or providing tools and equipment can result in injury. Additionally, surgeons must be completely informed of the surgery they are performing and the medical needs of the patient. Relaying this information correctly may be the responsibility of several people in a hospital.

Our surgical error law firm in Tennessee will evaluate the details of your case to determine the cause of your injury and identify liable parties.

A surgical error claim may be focused on incidents such as:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Operating on an incorrect body part
  • Leaving tools inside of the body of a patient
  • Performing surgery on the wrong patient
  • Misdiagnosis and medical testing errors

Liability for Surgical Errors

There are multiple people in a hospital who are responsible for ensuring surgeries go smoothly. Surgeons complete procedures, nurses provide assistance, and anesthesiologists work with the surgeons and nurses if anesthesia is required. Although not directly involved in the surgery itself, other parties such as pharmacists and medical device manufacturers may be liable if surgical errors occur. Additionally, the administration of the hospital where the surgery was performed will likely be held liable for failing to provide surgeons and other members of their staff with proper training and tools.
