Are Surgical Errors Always Medical Malpractice?
When a person comes out of surgery and suspects something is not right, it may not be easy to know exactly what happened. A person recovering from surgery may experience some pain and swelling; however, people must listen to their instincts. If something does not feel right, contact your doctor, get to an emergency room and/or obtain a second opinion immediately. Although all surgery carries risk, this risk does not include preventable medical errors and surgical mistakes by a doctor, nurse or other health care professional.
