Consequences of Surgical Mistakes

Many different kinds of errors can happen before, during, and after a surgical procedure. There are numerous people involved in such procedures, including surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and technicians. If they fail to act responsibly, they may mistakes such as:

  • Misidentifying organs or other body parts
  • Performing a surgery that was not necessary
  • Failing to notice or respond to surgical complications
  • Providing too much or too little anesthesia

Surgical errors can create the need for additional medical treatment, adding to the patient’s medical bills and further compromising his or her health.
