When you put your life in the hands of trusted surgical professionals, you may not anticipate that they will make a mistake. Yet, surgical errors affect thousands of people in Ohio and across the United States every year. Surgeon negligence can lead to serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries. Mistakes made in the operating room can result in the need for subsequent surgical procedures, additional emotional and physical pain, increased risk of infection and possibly permanent injury.
Types Of Surgical Mistakes
While the details of each case are unique, there are several common types of surgical mistakes that occur in the operating room. Surgeons may:
- Operate on the wrong body part
- Operate on the wrong patient
- Fail to use proper surgical and aseptic techniques
- Leave a foreign object inside of a patient once the surgery is completed
