Many people are afraid of anesthesia due to the major lack of control part of it. The idea of being under a sedative while having our bodies worked on is frightening; however, sometimes some procedures are necessary. When this happens you have no choice but to trust the doctor. After all, the doctor has been through years of training and school, has work experience, and in general, should know what they are doing. Usually, anesthesia is a breeze and is used with no problems for the patient. But, there are some circumstances where there are anesthesia errors. This is a very serious form of medical malpractice. Giving someone too little or too much anesthesia can result in some serious complications, with worst-case scenarios ending up in death.
One of the other kinds of medical malpractice we see is surgical errors. Surgical errors are critical and can result in the patient being put in harm. These kinds of errors range from making incisions in the wrong place, leaving items inside the body, or performing the surgery in the wrong setting. Although some of these mistakes are worse than others, they all can result in infection, lifelong medical problems, and even death. When you consent to go into surgery you are putting all of your trust into the surgeon to do their job with the utmost care. This is someone you are supposed to be able to trust. If you find that a surgery you have had included medical malpractice we recommend calling our office today. Your first consultation is free, giving you nothing to lose.
Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose
This form of medical malpractice is purely irresponsible on the doctor’s end. Part of why we all make an effort to visit the doctor regularly is to ensure we are healthy. If it so happens that something is wrong, we depend on the doctor to tell us and lead us through our course of treatment. However, when you are misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all, it can lead to a small issue becoming quite serious quite quickly. Being misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all can allow for an illness or condition to continue to progress and do more harm. This is wrong on so many levels on the doctor’s end as you will likely be in a more compromising position and have more medical bills in the future. Misdiagnosing is especially bad as treating someone for a condition they don’t have can negatively affect them health-wise.
