Wrong-Side Surgery

Wrong-Side Surgery

Rock Hill SC Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Recently in Washington, a doctor operated on a little boy’s left eye when she was supposed to operate on his right. Her reasoning for this mistake was that she lost her sense of direction.

Careless mistakes by doctors frequently lead to wrong-side and wrong-site surgeries. Doctors are supposed to take a marker and mark on their patient’s body where they are having surgery at to avoid these careless mistakes.

These mistakes, which also happen in North and South Carolina and are examples of Medical Malpractice, can lead to serious injuries and even death.

Not only are wrong-side surgeries dangerous, they are also costly. Usually when a wrong-side surgery happens, the original problem goes unfixed. This means that you will most likely have to have another surgery to correct what you went in for the first time.
