Surgical Error | Medical Malpractice Defined

Surgical error is a preventable mistake occurring when an error or mistake on the part of health professionals results in additional harm to the patient. While the patient typically acknowledges the potential for mistakes before surgery, surgical error cases address unexpected harms that go beyond known risks in surgery. Surgical error can be the result of insufficient preoperative planning, poor communication between medical professionals, fatigue, incompetence or neglect.
