Improper Patient Positioning During Surgery Malpractice – File Claim Here
Going for surgery is not something to be taken lightly due to the many errors that can cause complications. In addition, going under anesthesia presents novel risks to the patient, and because of this, it is not uncommon for a patient being operated on to be monitored by more than three physicians. However, perhaps the most important aspect of any surgery lies in the positioning of the patient, which can play a major role in whether the surgery is a success or not. Surgical positioning usually takes into account an individual’s weight, age, and any underlying conditions in order to make sure that any risks to their health are canceled out. Surgical misplacement can cause a host of complications such as excessive and uncontrolled bleeding, the development of blood clots and even cardiac arrest. Because physicians are taught about and know very well the importance of proper body placement during surgery, there is absolutely no excuse for health complications arising out of body misplacement during surgery. If this happened to you or a loved one, then you have every right to file a lawsuit to recover compensation in the form of money damages, and we’re here to help with that.
