Surgical errors leading to serious injury or death can begin before the surgery has even taken place.
- Did the doctor accurately inform you of the risks of the surgical procedure so you could make an informed decision (as with elective weight loss surgery)?
- Were you a good candidate for the surgery or did you have a medical condition that would make the surgery more risky or ineffective (which is the case with some lasik eye surgery).
Once the surgery has begun, errors in the operating room can include everything from operating on the wrong body part, to leaving a tool or sponge in the body, to problems with anesthesia.
Finally, poor nursing care after surgery can leave the patient susceptible to blood clots, breathing problems, brain damage, or life-threatening infection.
