Human error during surgery

Many different types of errors can occur during a surgical procedure. Florida residents who need to have surgery can take steps to give themselves the best chances of not being a victim of human errors during a procedure. If an error does take place during their surgery, it is important that they know what steps to take to protect their interests and rights.

Major surgical mistakes have serious consequences

In Florida, some types of surgical errors are so egregious that they are widely reported by the media. These types of surgical mistakes include operating on the wrong patient, performing surgery on the wrong site or attempting the wrong surgical procedure. These incidents are so serious that they are referred to as "never incidents" because they should never happen.

Surgical sponges found in woman's body years after surgery

Leaving a surgical instrument inside a patient following a surgery is considered to be a "never event," meaning it should never happen at a Florida health care center. However, there are rare cases when this does occur and results in complications months or even years later. One such recently discovered incident occurred to a Japanese woman.

How hospitalists reduce risk of obstetrician malpractice

In Florida, as elsewhere in the U.S., obstetricians find themselves faced with various pressures. They are often the target of lawsuits as patients can quickly put the blame on them when their expectations of a normal birth and a healthy baby are not met. One of the most common claims in these malpractice suits is that an obstetrician's delay during the delivery process caused the injury or condition in question.

Medical malpractice isn't always a slam dunk

When people talk about medical malpractice cases, it is easy to feel sympathy for the victim and to immediately assume that the medical professional or medical institution on the other side of the equation is at fault. And in many cases, this is true. But it is also important to recognize that not every medical malpractice case will lead to justice. There are ways for medical professionals and institutions to defend themselves, and we want to cover those possibilities in today's post.
