Surgical Error

Going in to hospital to undergo surgery can be an anxious and stressful time. For a small number of patients every year, this is made worse when they discover that they have been injured or harmed as a result of surgical error.

There are a number of errors which can and do occur:

  • Operating on the wrong part of the body
  • Performing an unnecessary operation
  • Damaging other parts of the body during surgery
  • Poor surgical technique
  • Lack of post-operative review
  • Failure to remove swabs, instruments etc.

While all surgery carries a degree of risk, some damage or injury to patients should simply not occur. Every patient deserves the very highest quality of care.
