Wrong Side Surgery

Posted by Alvin Wolff | Mar 15, 2018 | 0 Comments

Our office has handled multiple wrong sided or wrong site surgery cases.     These cases occur wen the doctor either operates on the wrong body part or on the wrong side of the body part.   These errors constitute system failures that involve the whole operative team.   The operative permit should include the type of operation being performed which includes a description of the side of the body and body part involved.    The body part is to be marked.    In the operating room there is supposed to be a time out where everybody on the operative team stops what they are doing and says yes to the patient, type of surgery and place of surgery.    A failure can occur at any place during this process which is a recipe for disaster.

We have tried these cases to verdict.   We have settled these cases.

If you have suffered from wrong sided or wrong site surgery, call us an interview to see if we can be of assistance.
