For many people, there is no greater demonstration of faith in their physician than submitting to surgery. The number of variables that have the potential to negatively impact the success of a surgery is high. The surgeon and the team that supports the surgeon must perform all of their tasks at an incredibly high level of proficiency.
When that level of proficiency is not met, patients can suffer grave injuries. Common types of surgical errors include:
- Leaving a foreign object behind — Sponges and surgical instruments may be left in a patient following surgery.
- Wrong site surgery — Surgeons sometimes operate on the wrong part of the body or perform the wrong surgery on a patient.
- Nicking or perforating blood vessels or internal organs — This can lead to life-threatening loss of blood or organ failure.
Anesthesia errors — Errors by an anesthesiologist can rapidly lead to brain damage or death.
- Improper post-surgical care — Failing to monitor a patient’s condition post-surgery can lead to life-threatening infection and other complications.
