Examples Of Surgical Negligence
These cases are complex, and it can be difficult for someone outside of the medical and legal professions to understand when a malpractice claim is possible. For example, if a surgeon nicks an internal organ during surgery and the damage is immediately repaired, it is unlikely that there will be an option of filing a medical malpractice claim because there was no lasting damage. However, if the surgeon failed to repair the damage and an infection developed, and the infection was not treated in a timely manner, a claim may be appropriate.
Some clear examples of surgical malpractice include:
- Doctors operating on the wrong side or wrong part of the patient’s body
- Doctors conducting the wrong type of surgery
- Doctors leaving surgical implements inside the patient’s body
- Incorrect administration of anesthesia
