Recognizing Common Surgical Errors
Surgical errors do not necessarily take place during the actual operation. In fact, many adverse outcomes are due to mistakes that take place before or after the procedure. For example:
- Delay in diagnosis makes surgical intervention risky or unsuccessful
- Diagnosis error, leading to the wrong treatment
- A breakdown in communication between the medical provider and patient
- Poor post-operative care
During surgery, common mistakes include:
- Wrong operation procedure for the patient
- Wrong operation site, for example, operating on the right arm when the left arm required surgery
- Procedure mistakes, including retained medical instruments
- Anesthesia errors
The results of surgical error can range from nerve damage and scar tissue to major medical complications and death. All errors have the potential to inflict lifelong consequences.
