Lawsuits for Anesthesiologist Errors

When an individual undergoes a medical procedure, oftentimes they will be administered anesthesia. Anesthesia is used in simple procedures at the dentist and also in major, life-changing surgeries. This is a versatile drug used to make sure the patient is unable to feel the surgery taking place if they are awake and sometimes, puts them to sleep entirely while numbing the impacted area until the surgery is over. Patients put a lot of trust into anesthesiologists and other medical staff that are handling their medical issue. A drug of this caliber requires an experienced anesthesiologist to work with expert precision to make sure the patient is safe from the beginning through the end of the procedure. If the anesthesiologist is negligent at any point, the patient’s life can be put at stake or they could be subject to further injury.

It is important that the anesthesiologist meets with the patient beforehand to discuss any medical issues such as a heart problem, an allergy to the medication, or diabetes. Some of the most common anesthesia errors include:

  • Administering too much or too little anesthesia, resulting in either an overdose or the patient waking up during surgery
  • Failure to properly monitor the patient before, during, or after the procedure
  • Leaving a patient unattended
