Before a surgery, patients and family members typically pay the most attention to the surgeon. They assume that other surgical team members will follow accepted standards of care. However, sometimes a bad surgery outcome is the doing of another key player, such as the anesthesiologist.
Medical malpractice in the case of anesthesia may consist of one or more of the following:
- Failure to administer the right level of anesthesia
- Failure to take into account individual risk factors
- Administration of the wrong type of anesthesia
- Faulty use of related equipment and devices such as intubation devices
- Failure to monitor patient response to medication
Our attorneys are well-prepared to advise you and guide you through a medical malpractice claim after you were injured or a loved one died because of an anesthesia error.
