Minneapolis Anesthesia Error Attorney
Determining the cause of an anesthesia–related mistake
Some of the worst injuries that can occur during surgery involve anesthesia mistakes. The wrong anesthesia for a particular patient, the wrong dosage, failure to react to distress, or poor communications among those in the operating room can all lead to serious injury and, in the worst cases, death.
Whether an anesthesiologist or technician makes a mistake that causes injury or the mistake was caused by faulty equipment, the result is medical malpractice. In a study of anesthesia mistakes, the overwhelming majority involved human error, not equipment failure, but both are the result of medical negligence.
- Anesthesia mistakes are often the result of miscommunication in the operating room — ranging from personality conflicts to poor patient records.
- The technicians involved may not have the proper training.
- Patient charts are not carefully read, leading to side effects such as allergic reactions that should have been predictable.
If you or a loved one has been injured by an anesthesia error, you deserve to know what happened and you should be compensated. Talk to a medical malpractice lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to do a thorough investigation of the circumstances.
