Picking up from where we left off in Surgery Errors and Medical Malpractice Claims (Pt. 1), here, we will continue our discussion regarding surgery errors, liability and injured people’s options for compensation.
While the first part of this blog concentrated on discussing some specific and common types of surgery errors, below, we will take a closer look at some of the factors that can increase the risk of this type of negligence and medical malpractice.
Factors that Increase the Risks of Surgery Errors
Surgery errors (and any type of medical malpractice, for that matter) are more likely to occur when medical professionals:
- Are not properly trained and/or do not have the proper credentials to be overseeing or assisting with a surgical procedure
- Are not properly or appropriately communicating
- Are exhausted (due to, for instance, having to work double shifts)
- Are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (regardless of whether these drugs are legal or illegal)
- Are simply inattentive, careless, distracted and basically not being as diligent as they should.
While the specific surgeons, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who are responsible for causing surgery errors and the resulting injuries can be held liable for compensating injured patients, it may also be possible for injured people to sue the hospitals that employ these negligent medical professionals (depending on the specifics of the incident).
