Surgical Errors and Their Causes
It does not take a doctorate to understand that the stakes are high whenever
someone comes to the emergency room or agrees to surgery to correct a
problem. Surgeons and their team cannot leave any room for negligence
or mistakes, and yet surgical errors happen frequently.
Common types and consequences of surgical errors include:
- Items left inside a patient
- Unnecessary surgery
- Amputating the wrong limb
- Damage to nearby nerves
- Wrongful death
As varied as the outcomes of surgical errors may seem, there is usually
only one source: negligence. Not taking the task at hand seriously or
allowing distractions in any way puts innocent lives on the line. Regardless
of what the surgical staff may claim after causing a dangerous
medical malpractice incident, the reasoning cannot be accepted as a valid excuse.
Causes of surgical errors may include:
- Inadequate planning
- Intoxication or drug-use
