Wrong-Site Surgery And Other ‘Never’ Events
Some medical mistakes are so egregious that they have been categorized as “never” events, meaning they should never happen in a medical setting. However, despite the medical community’s increased focus on preventing “never” events, they still occur at alarming rates.
Wrong-site surgery — or operating on the wrong part of the body — is one type of “never” event, and it shocks people to learn that wrong-site surgery happens dozens of times each week in the United States.
The list of surgical “never” events also includes:
- Wrong implant or prosthesis
- Leaving a towel, scissors or other foreign object inside the patient
Even if a surgical error is clearly due to medical malpractice, you can expect medical providers and their insurance companies to deny responsibility. Let us help you hold them responsible.
