Misdiagnosis Of A Heart Attack Or Stroke
A medical emergency, such as a stroke or heart attack, warrants special, immediate attention from medical staff. The wrong diagnosis in a situation where a patient is suffering from a stroke or heart attack can lead to lasting side effects, such as paralysis, brain damage and damaged heart tissue, even the possible wrongful death of the patient.
When adverse complications appear after surgery, the doctor may claim the procedure had inherent risks, which the patient knowingly took. However, surgical complications may also constitute medical error. Physician error and negligence can result in complications in almost any type of surgery.
Surgical errors may range from minor to serious, even causing death. Even the simplest of cosmetic surgical procedures may result in a surgical error. Some examples of surgical errors are:
- Organ puncture or perforation
- Operating on the wrong area of the body
- Performing the wrong surgery
- Performing the surgery on the wrong patient
- Leaving items inside the patient during surgery
