If you are preparing for an operation or recently had a surgical procedure performed, you may have a myriad of questions and concerns. For example, you could be worried about the cost of the procedure or the risks associated with surgery. Unfortunately, you may experience challenges even after the operation is over, from physical pain to costly bills and the consequences of a post-operative error. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand the serious nature of these mistakes and the impact they have on patients in San Bernardino, and people who live throughout California.
It is important to realize that medical professionals can make mistakes at any point, even after surgery is successfully performed. Often, patients and their loved ones feel relieved once the surgery is over and it can be especially troubling to face hardships that arise after an operation. There are many ways that post-operative errors occur, whether medical professionals fail to properly address a surgical wound that becomes infected or monitor a patient’s progress. Sadly, mistakes made after an operation can be just as serious as errors that take place during surgery and may lead to a debilitating condition or even the loss of life.
If you have experienced a post-operative error, it is vital to swiftly address the situation. If you believe that a medical professional’s negligence caused you to experience unnecessary suffering, you should consider all options on the table. On the medical malpractice page of our site, you will find more information related to a post-operative error and other types of medical professional negligence.
