Negligence in Baltimore’s Operating Rooms
Surgeries can make anyone feel vulnerable. You are rendered unconscious by an anesthesiologist and subjected to incisions and other actions performed by a surgeon. It is not uncommon to feel nervous or anxious before entering into surgery, but most patients assume that they will be well taken care of by medical staff while they are under anesthesia; however, this is not always the case.
Did you sustain an injury during a surgery in Baltimore?
Surgery is a very sensitive part of the medical field. Regardless of the specificities of the procedure, every operation carries an inherent degree of risk by nature. However, if an error occurs due to the gross negligence or oversight of one of the operating staff, the injuries sustained by the patient could be attributed to medical malpractice. Surgical errors are a serious matter – never is a person more at the mercy of another human being than when they are under the influence of anesthetics and being operated on. During those times, we trust in the education, training and experience of the surgeons to properly handle the situation. Failure to practice to the standard of care required for surgical professionals can result in serious, if not life-threatening, injuries to the patient.
