Surgical Malpractice – Errors After Surgery
50% of all surgeries go bad. These surgeries gone wrong include errors during and after surgery. The postoperative care provided to patients is equally as important as the care provided during an operation. Errors after surgery can leave a patient paralyzed by fall injuries. Patients can suffer brain injuries due to respiratory failure. Anesthesia and surgery are tough on the body. Patients must be closely monitored after surgery to make sure they recover from the effects of anesthesia. They must also be watched for signs or symptoms of surgical complications.
Many complications after surgery are preventable. Patients who are still feeling the effects of anesthesia should not be up and about putting themselves at risk for falls. The post-anesthesia care providers must keep patients safe from harm such as falls. Not all patients recover from anesthesia the same. As a result, post-anesthesia care should be particular to the patient. Each patient’s individual signs and symptoms should be assessed.
