Surgical Errors Archives

Lawsuit claims foreign object left inside patient caused injuries

Most New Jersey patients are aware that, while often necessary, beneficial and even life-saving, surgery can be dangerous. Even with the most experienced and highly trained surgeons, surgical procedures always carry some degree of unavoidable risk. What is avoidable, though, is the issue of careless surgical errors that should never happen, such as a foreign object left behind in the patient's body.

Hospital negligence could lead to unnecessary surgery

Many individuals have heard horror stories relating to medical procedures and mistakes. Unfortunately, numerous patients are the victims of such mistakes, and they can suffer substantially negative results due to those errors. When hospital negligence causes such outcomes, individuals may wish to determine whether taking legal action against the hospital and staff members may be warranted.

After the birth of a child, many parents feel joyous. Of course, delivery can sometimes cause complications that lead to the mother needing emergency care. In some cases, surgery may be required in order to attend to those issues and ensure the health of the mother. Unfortunately, some procedures could end up causing problems of their own if a foreign object left behind is discovered later.

Preventative steps may not always prevent surgery gone wrong

The idea of undergoing surgery fills many people with apprehension. When stories of surgery gone wrong are often circulated, it is not surprising that patients often wonder if they will be the victims of such an event. Unfortunately, the possibility for such an outcome does exist, but New Jersey residents could also take steps in hopes of protecting themselves.

Infection, other outcomes could stem from medical mistakes

Undergoing surgery is nerve-wracking enough without having to worry about the competency of the medical staff.

Many individuals can suffer from infection or other severe problems due to negligence on the part of medical professionals.

Christmas lights and alleged hospital negligence

Hanging Christmas lights is a tradition in many New Jersey homes. Dad often hangs the lights while the rest of the family helps. This task often involves climbing around on roofs and ladders, and one must be very careful not to fall. One unfortunate gentleman did fall while hanging Christmas lights in December 2011, and what began as a Christmas tradition ended in a claim of hospital negligence.
