Phoenix Surgical Error Lawyer

Surgery has become a more high-tech procedure than ever before. Many surgical procedures that would have once required hospitalization are now out-patient clinical treatments. While surgery has become more convenient for patients, it has also become more popular. Newly designed surgical treatments can now improve conditions that would have been untreatable even in recent years.

Unfortunately, despite the impressive technology available to surgeons, very basic errors are still being made. According to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the number of surgical errors has increased dramatically since 1998. Phoenix surgical error attorneys Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C., are committed to helping the victims of these egregious mistakes.

The Universal Protocol

The Joint Commission has established a procedure that surgical teams are expected to follow before every surgery. When the Universal Protocol is observed, the odds of a surgical error are greatly reduced. Before your surgery, the surgeons and assistants should:

  • Review your health information, ideally with your participation.
  • Mark the surgical site accurately and clearly.
  • Have a “time out” before surgery begins to double-check everything.
