Anesthesia Mistakes – No Room For Error
There is no room for error when delivering anesthesia to a patient. Failure to correctly prep a patient, read a patient’s chart, or deliver the correct amount of anesthetic could result in brain damage or death. At the law office of Greene Ketchum, our medical malpractice lawyers work closely with anesthesiologists and medical experts in exposing anesthesia malpractice.
Knowledgeable Review Of Medical Procedures
We review the entrance forms of a patient, when they last ate, any allergies they have, if they have medical conditions that should have been noted, and other factors doctors and nurses should have identified. We carefully review post-op procedures and whether a patient transferred to a hospital room while he or she was still groggy or nauseous.
