The reasons behind wrong-site surgeries

Doctors and surgeons are among the most respected working professionals in America, due in large part to dedication they have in mastering their craft. Yet despite all of their education and experience, these men and women are still human, and thus subject to the same errors as anyone else in Providence. Yet that fact still makes it no less shocking to hear of the mistakes made by doctors when treating patients. Among the most difficult to comprehend are cases when doctors perform surgery on the wrong body part.

Any kind of surgery is associated with a certain amount of risk but it is the responsibility of doctors and surgical room staff to minimize those risks. A careless surgeon or negligent staff can result in complications for the patient that include permanent damage. These surgical mistakes can lead to years of pain and anguish for the patient and their families as well as untold hardships. When this occurs, patients can seek reparation through filing a lawsuit.

Surgical mistakes continue to cause death, injury to patients

When residents in Providence are told that they need surgery, they may wish to examine the surgical error rate for the hospital where the surgery will take place. Surgical mistakes continue to occur in hospitals in and around Rhode Island and might actually be increasing.
