How Do Surgeons Commit Negligence In The Operating Room?
Surgical mistakes take several forms, but generally they happen because of inattention by a member of the surgical team, sometimes during preoperative prep and sometimes during the operation itself. Examples include:
- Operating on the wrong-side body part, such as the right lung instead of the left
- Performing the wrong operation because you were mixed up with another patient
- Inadvertently leaving behind a sponge or other surgical tool in your body
- Anesthesia errors
