You deserve compensation for surgical errors

Surgical errors are truly unacceptable events. When a surgeon walks into a surgery, all of their focus has to be on the patient. Others working with them need to understand the job at hand and do everything they can to get the patient through the surgery successfully and without complications.

How can hospitals avoid 'never events?'

One of the most common surgical errors is known as a 'never event.' A never event is a surgical event that never should have happened under the correct circumstances. For example, a surgeon should never leave a sponge inside a patient. Similarly, a surgeon should never operate on the wrong body part.

Common plastic surgery errors

Plastic surgery is a type of procedure that has become increasingly common in recent years, and this means that while more people have been successful in achieving the physical appearance that they want, there has also been an increase in negative outcomes from plastic surgery.

When weight loss surgery errors are malpractice

Losing a loved one to complications from surgery is a heartbreaking experience, and one that nobody should ever have to go through. Surgery for weight loss, such as gastric bypass surgery, carries with it many risks, but it is performed with the intention of improving someone's health. Complications can easily arise from such a surgery; however, it is the responsibility of the hospital staff to mitigate the risks and to make the decision not to perform the surgery if the patient is too high-risk.

The difference between complications and medical malpractice

When you are a patient in a surgery that did not go entirely to plan, it is likely that you will have had a long recovery process and wondered whether the traumatic experience that you endured was acceptable under the law. Although things can go wrong in a surgical procedure, sometimes the surgeon or medical provider makes mistakes that are negligent, and when this is the case, legal action can be taken.
