What Is Anesthesia Malpractice?
Not every bad anesthesia outcome constitutes malpractice. There are risks to every medical procedure, and sometimes people die or suffer serious injuries even when medical professionals did everything they were supposed to do. However, if your injury is due to a failure of the medical provider to meet the standard of care that is owed to every patient, you may have a case of malpractice. Here are some examples of anesthesia errors that may be considered malpractice:
- Administering too much or too little anesthesia
- Administering the wrong anesthesia
- Failure to monitor your breathing and vital signs while you are under anesthesia
- Leaving the room while you are under anesthesia
- Failure to protect you from falls while you are under
- Failure to monitor your condition after you come out from under anesthesia
Our lawyers will carefully evaluate your case to determine if you may have a case of malpractice against the anesthesiologist or other health care providers.
