That is one of the keys to his constant success with medical malpractice and hospital negligence complaints for his Illinois clients here in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
What Are Some Common Anesthesia Mistakes?
The vast majority of mistakes with anesthesia involve incorrect dosage amounts or other issues caused by human error. Some of the most common mistakes include:
- Administering too much anesthesia
- Administering too little anesthesia
- Intubation errors
- Failure to provide adequate oxygen
- Allergic reactions
- Failure to closely monitor the patient’s vital signs
- Failure to take a full patient history
- Failing to recognize complications in process
When patients are given too much anesthesia or not monitored properly, they may suffer brain injuries, strokes, heart attacks, nerve damage, internal organ damage, paralysis, coma or death. When patients are given too little anesthesia, they may suffer excruciating pain during their surgery and develop significant post-traumatic stress disorder.
An attorney serves a critical role in claims involving anesthesia errors. Attorney Frank Morrissey knows how to investigate a case to determine what went wrong and who shares in the responsibility for a patient’s injuries. That is key to getting the appropriate compensation.
