Medical Malpractice Claims for Anesthesiology Errors
Errors committed in the administration of anesthesia are relatively rare in comparison to the number of surgical procedures performed each year. But when mistakes occur, they can be devastating. Anesthesiology errors can result in death or permanent injury, including brain damage.
The most common examples of errors committed in the administration of anesthesia are the following:
- Administering the wrong dose of anesthesia
- Administering the wrong type of anesthesia
- Improper induction or failure to put a patient under anesthesia
- Failure to properly manage the administration of blood, fluids and medications
Beyond errors in the administration of anesthesia, anesthesiologists have a duty not to participate in surgeries that are unnecessary or that they believe is too dangerous under the circumstances. An anesthesiologist also must ensure the patient has fully recovered from the anesthesia prior to being transferred from the operating room or discharged from the hospital or surgical center.
If an anesthesiologist committed a mistake that harmed you or a loved one, you may have grounds to bring a medical malpractice claim.
