When an individual has an ailment that medicine, rehabilitation, or therapy cannot cure, he or she may require surgery. Surgery requires the attention and care of a number of health care providers, each of which plays an integral part in the surgery being a success.
Unfortunately, sometimes surgical errors occur. When this happens, the patient may suffer serious injury or even death. If you or someone you love suffered an injury after a surgical error, contact the Racine medical malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
Surgery is a long process that begins with diagnosis. After it is determined a patient needs surgery, the surgeon sets a date for the surgery and instructs the individual on what steps to take in the days leading up to the procedure.
On the day of the procedure, a nurse may prepare a patient for surgery. When the operating room has been prepared, the patient will be led to the operating table, and the anesthesiologist will sedate the individual so that he or she does not feel pain during the process.
The surgeon performs the actual surgery, and the nurse assists by handing the surgeon various surgical tools throughout the procedure.
Any of these individuals may be guilty of medical malpractice, so it is important to consult with an experienced Racine medical malpractice attorney when you have been the victim of surgical error so that you can identify who was actually at fault.
