Operating On The Wrong Body Part
One common form of medical malpractice in the operating room is mistakenly operating on the wrong body part. Whether it was a mistake of operating on the right leg instead of the left, or conducting the wrong surgery on a patient, these mistakes can cause lasting and unnecessary harm to a victim. This preventable errors may require them to suffer longer recovery times in addition to what they were expecting from the correct procedure.
Wrong Type Of Surgical Procedures
In addition to conducting a surgery on the wrong body part, a doctor could conduct the wrong surgical procedure altogether. For example, a patient may have experienced an appendectomy instead of the kidney surgery they were expecting. Despite the protocols in place to avoid these mistakes, these errors can still happen.
