Suing for Anesthesia Errors

Suing for Anesthesia Errors

Posted By Golomb & Honik, P.C. || 11-Jun-2018

Common Anesthesia Errors

Sometimes doctors, anesthesiologists, and other hospital staff fail to follow proper protocol when administering anesthesia or monitoring anesthetized patients. These mistakes can result in a wide range of problems, including:

  • Allergic reaction to the anesthetic
  • Anesthesia awareness (or waking up) during a procedure
  • Brain damage
  • Coma
  • Damage to the teeth, throat, larynx, or airways (if anesthesia is administered orally or through tubes)
  • Death
  • Heart attack or stroke
  • Temporary delirium, amnesia, or confusion
  • Unnecessary, additional pain following an operation

Sometimes the above occur because a doctor administers too much of a given medication, anesthetizes a patient using a medication to which they are allergic, or simply fails to acknowledge, recognize, or act on clear signs of anesthesia-related complications.

Whether these are human error or a result of reckless behavior, they still produce additional medical complications, hefty medical bills, and a great deal of personal suffering for affected patients. Such negligence can create hundreds of thousands or even upwards of one million dollars in medical expenses for patients and their families—and those responsible should have to pick up the tab.
