Medication Errors

In most cases, nurses and doctors perform a great service to patients by providing them with professional medical care. However, when mistakes are made, the results can lead to devastating problems. Medications errors occur for a variety of reasons, including insufficient training and poor communication. Common examples include:

  • Nurse being unfamiliar with the prescribed medications
  • Improper lab results
  • Miscommunication of health problems
  • Bad handwriting and/or improper labeling

Surgical Errors

Despites many years of training, surgeons do make medical mistakes. These mistakes can turn even the most routine surgeries, into patient nightmares. Common types of surgical errors, include leaving surgical instruments in the patients after surgery, performing surgery on the wrong body part, performing the wrong surgery, and improper technique. These surgical errors can result in infections, complications, and even death.

The exact causes of medical mistakes that occur in surgery rooms are difficult to determine. As such, you need an attorney who understands what to look for in your medical records.
