“Never events” in medicine are the kinds of mistakes that should never happen under any circumstances. Among the most common “never events” are surgical errors such as unintended retention of a foreign body in a patient after surgery, surgery performed on the wrong body part, surgery performed on the wrong patient, and the incorrect surgical procedure performed on a patient.
If you or a loved one have suffered serious injuries as a result of a surgical error, you need to consult an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure that your rights are protected. “Never events” are obvious examples of medical malpractice, but the operating physician and surgical staff owe their patients the highest standard of care. Many other unsuccessful surgeries are also the result of medical negligence.
