What Leads to Anesthesia Accidents / Errors?
Doctors and medical professionals are held to high standards. When they fail to meet these standards of patient care, the results can be severe, if not fatal. Anesthesia errors can occur due to a number of reasons, from failing to use machines correctly to selecting the wrong drug for an allergic patient. In many cases, such serious missteps are due to negligence or medical malpractice.
If an anesthesiologist failed to administer drugs correctly or a doctor did not take a patient’s history into consideration, they should be held accountable for any damages caused. Even failing to monitor a patient throughout a procedure lead to devastating consequences.
