Wrong Site Surgery Errors

It is important for a patient to properly prepare themselves, mentally and physically, for a surgical procedure. It is even more critical that the medical staff performing the surgery adequately prepares for the surgical procedure. This includes properly gathering, sharing, and reviewing information that is pertinent to the operation. Regrettably, there are too many incidents in which failures on the part of one or more individuals endanger patient safety.

In some cases, the problems are so severe that a surgical team might operate on the wrong part of the body. The adverse health consequences of such a mistake are understandably likely to be rather severe. A civil lawsuit might gain you financial compensation for the harm that you have endured due to a medical professional’s negligence.

Dangerous Surgical Errors

Surgery is a serious matter, no matter how complex or involved it may be. If a surgery is not performed on the site needing medical attention, the damage can be extensive, and the initial problem may be allowed to worsen. A wrong site surgery can have the following adverse health effects:

  • Unnecessary incisions
  • Needless risk of infection
  • Harm to healthy tissues, organs, or anatomical structures
  • Unnecessary amputation
  • Necessity of further surgery
