Surgical Medical Malpractice in Jackson, Mississippi

Medical mistakes that take place during surgery can happen when a doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist or other member of the surgical team fails in their duty to provide an acceptable standard of care for their patient. A recent report issued by The Institute of Medicine reveals that upwards of ninety-five thousand deaths in the nation’s hospitals can be attributed to medical and surgical mistakes.

A surgical mistake can include the wrong surgical procedure being performed, the wrong surgical site being operated on, medical instruments used during surgery being left inside the patient, organ puncture, unnecessary or unwarranted surgery, delayed or prolonged surgery, anesthesia problems, or a failure to react in a timely manner to problems that arise during or after surgery.

Some of the most common surgical procedures that are at risk for surgical mistakes include a hysterectomy, gall bladder surgery, appendicitis, back surgery, bariatric surgeries including lap band and stomach-stapling procedures and cosmetic surgical procedures.
