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
  • Paralysis
  • 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:

  • Exhaustion
  • Inadequate planning
  • Ineptitude
  • Intoxication or drug-use
