Medical Malpractice Information
Examples of medical mistakes include:
- Anesthesia Errors – when mistakes are made putting patients under general anesthesia, consequences can include seizures, arrhythmia, paralysis and death. In some cases the mistakes can lead to what is known as anesthesia awareness. This horrific situation occurs when the patient can feel the pain of the surgery, but is unable to communicate to inform the surgeon.
- Medication Errors – medication errors can include giving the wrong dosages, incorrect medications, or failing to give proper usage instruction.
- Misdiagnosis – a missed diagnosis can result in lost time that could have been used for life-saving treatments.
- Surgical Errors – examples include operating on the wrong body part or the wrong patient and surgical errors can include post-operative infections.
