Outpatient Surgery Malpractice
Is Your Health A Fair Trade For A Convenient Outpatient Surgery?
When you have a surgery, you expect your doctors, nurses and hospital or clinic to give you first-rate care. Outpatient surgeries are a growing trend in medicine. They offer single day procedures with lower costs and the chance to get back to your routine sooner.
No one wants to trade their health for convenience. When someone makes a mistake (or something goes wrong) medical malpractice could keep you from ever returning to your life. Their negligence could be life changing. Expensive follow-up surgeries, pain, lost wages and a lifetime of problems could follow. If their carelessness caused you complications, call our personal injury attorneys at Parham Smith & Archenhold LLC.
Improved Technologies May Not Improve Your Outcome
There have been many advances, including anesthesia, pain control and other technologies. There are also new cost-saving measures, and they do not improve safety. Cataract surgery, hernia repairs, gallbladder removal, tonsillectomies and some cosmetic surgeries are common outpatient operations. Unfortunately, even with all the advances, doctors, nurses and medical staff still make mistakes and bad decisions.
