Miller Medical Malpractice Surgical Errors

San Antonio Surgical Errors Attorney

Surgical errors are mistakes that occur during surgery. They can be caused by a variety of factors, including fatigue, distractions, human error, and inadequate training. Surgical errors can have serious consequences, including pain, infection, and even death.

There are many different types of surgical errors. Some of the most common include:

  • Technical errors: These errors are caused by a mistake in the surgeon's technique. For example, the surgeon might make a wrong incision or cut a nerve.
  • Communication errors: These errors occur when there is a misunderstanding between the surgeon and other members of the surgical team. For example, the surgeon might not communicate clearly with the anesthesia team, or the nurse might not understand the surgeon's orders.
  • Judgment errors: These errors are made when the surgeon makes a mistake in judgment. For example, the surgeon might operate on the wrong patient or perform the wrong surgery.

Surgical errors can be prevented by taking a number of steps, including:

  1. Using checklists: Checklists can help to ensure that all of the necessary steps are taken during surgery.
  2. Double-checking work: All of the surgeon's work should be double-checked by another member of the surgical team.
  3. Communicating effectively: The surgeon and other members of the surgical team should communicate effectively with each other.
  4. Reporting errors: Errors should be reported to the hospital or to a medical board.

Because surgical errors may not immediately be recognized, the patient may be presenting with signs and symptoms of blood loss, infection, or a retained object. Unless the post surgical team follows up on any post surgical changes, the mistake may go unrecognized for hours, days, or even months.

If you, or a loved one, has experienced a surgical error, you should contact Miller Medical Malpractice who can properly investigate your claims and appraise you of your rights.
