Surgical errors are among the most severe types of medical malpractice. Each year, around 98,000 hospital patients pass away because of such mistakes.
Below are some of the more common kinds of medical malpractice surgical errors:
• Commission: This is a mistake in which the wrong procedure is performed, such as operating on the incorrect body part or executing an unneeded surgery.
• Omission: This is a mistake in which the surgical team neglects to provide a patient with the necessary care.
• Execution: This is a mistake in which a procedure is not correctly executed.
Other errors include using unsterile equipment, leaving an instrument inside the body of a patient, incorrectly administration of anesthesia, and failing to inform a patient of potential risks and dangers.
The operations most commonly lend themselves to surgical mistakes are childbirth, gastric bypass, cardiac surgeries, thoracic surgeries, and cosmetic surgeries. However, a surgical error can occur in any type of surgery.
