Post-Operative Negligence

Most surgical procedures are accompanied by a set of risks. Even if the surgery itself is successful, there is still a risk of post-operative complications. Many post-operative injuries are caused or influenced by the negligence of doctors and other medical professionals.

Consequences of Negligent Post-Operative Care

Virtually all surgical procedures require some form of follow-up care. Even if the surgery is an outpatient procedure, doctors should continue to monitor the condition of the patient. If anesthesia is used, a patient should be examined by a post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) to evaluate his or her recovery. If a medical professional is negligent during this crucial recovery period, serious complications and injuries may result.

The following are common types of mistakes that cause harm in the aftermath of surgical procedures:

  • Medication errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Improper sanitation
  • Delayed treatment

Medical complications such as delayed healing, septic shock, and infection may result from negligent post-op care. Victims of this form of medical malpractice may be able to seek justice and fair compensation by taking legal action against the negligent physician.
