Seeking Justice for Surgical Errors

According to surgical error statistics research done by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at least 4,000 surgical errors occur in the United States each year. While this may be a small amount when compared to the number of surgeries performed in the U.S. each year, surgical malpractice is still an ongoing issue that impacts thousands of people each year.

Impact and Consequences of Surgical Errors

Mistakes made during surgery are “never events;” in other words, these are incidents that should never happen. When something goes wrong, the cause of it may be due to the doctor’s negligence although there may be many factors that can make the situation go wrong. Hospitals may be responsible under medical malpractice law if they failed to take the proper precautions and prevent injury or harm from occurring.

Identifying Common Surgical Mistakes

According to statistics, one of the most common type of surgical error often involves what's known as "wrong site surgery cases." These types of errors involve a doctor operating on the wrong part of a patient's body, or even the wrong patient at times! Anesthesia errors, leaving foreign objects (such as swabs or operating tools) in the patient's body, and nerve damage are the other most common types of surgical malpractice.

Other examples of common surgical errors include:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage, including brain injuries
  • Infection
  • Disfigurement
  • Damage to the nervous system
  • The surgery fails to meet expectations
