Surgeon removes kidney during back surgery without consent

Surgical mistakes that result in what the medical community calls "never events" involve operating on the wrong body part and even removing the wrong body part. People in Texas planning surgeries should know that these incidents happen in about 1 out of 112,000 surgeries according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The case of a woman who lost a kidney during a back operation illustrates how mistakes arise from poor surgical preparation and lack of consent.

A technological snafu can lead to medical malpractice

In many cases, medical malpractice involves a mistake made by a medical doctor, called an error of commission, or an error of omission, which is something a doctor failed to do. While such errors continue to occur in Texas health care centers, malpractice claims linked to technological errors are becoming increasingly common.

Dealing with surgical errors as they occur

While surgical procedures can save and improve the lives of many Texas residents, there are occasions when surgery goes wrong. When it does, complications that arise can result in errors that can have a negative impact on both the person's life and his or her family members' lives.

The risks associated with LASIK eye surgery

For some, relying on contact lenses or glasses can be a daily annoyance. However, LASIK surgery can reduce a person's reliance on these medical devices while still having clearer vision. The surgery changes the shape of the cornea to make the person's vision clearer permanently. However, as with all medical procedures, there are some risks associated with this particular procedure.

The importance of nurses in medical teams

Texas hospitals employ people in many different capacities, and all of them are responsible for providing efficient service and care to the many patients who enter their facilities every day. Nurses play one of the most important roles in health care, providing direct assistance to patients and doctors, including surgeons.
