Surgical Errors in Las Vegas, Nevada

Surgical errors are responsible for an excessive number of deaths in operating rooms in the United States each year. A surgical error occurs when a surgeon or other member of a surgical team fails to provide an accepted standard of care and treatment which results in injury or death.

Surgical errors are responsible for 50% of all medical malpractice lawsuits in this country annually. Surgical errors can occur pre-operatively, during surgery and post-operatively. Some typical surgical errors involve surgery on the wrong person, surgery on the wrong body part, anesthesia errors, medical instruments and materials left inside the surgical site and the failure to recognize when a surgical procedure is going terribly wrong. Post-operative infections are becoming one of the most common problems in hospitals across the country today due to negligence and carelessness on the part of hospital staffers.
