Most Common Surgical Errors By Surgeons
Some of the most common surgical errors include:
- Anesthesia errors
- Leaving surgical instruments inside patient
- Wrong surgical site is performed on
- Wrong procedure is performed
- Avoidable infection
It is important to understand that a bad result from a surgery is not necessary
considered medical malpractice. However, there are accepted standards
of care for surgical procedures, and surgeons are expected to follow to them.
More often than not, victims do not even realize they have become a victim
of medical malpractice. In fact according to a study released by the Office
of the Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services
(HHS), hospital employees are only reporting about fourteen percent of
all medical errors and usually do not change their practice to prevent
future harm to patients.
