Types of Surgical Errors
The proper preparation and execution of surgery should be expected of experienced and trained medical professionals, but unfortunately, mistakes are surprisingly common as a result of careless actions by members of the surgical team. Some of the most common surgical errors include:
- Operating on the wrong area of the body
- Performing unnecessary surgery
- Performing surgery on the wrong patient
- Leaving behind surgical tools in the body
- Failing to sterilize surgical tools properly
Any of these mistakes can cause serious harm to a patient, whether by creating a new problem, failing to address the original problem, or worsening the condition it was meant to treat.
