Information regarding wrong site surgery

As a patient, you hope that you always receive the best treatment from your medical team. This is particularly true if you are faced with a surgical procedure.

Believe it or not, wrong site surgery is more common than it should be.

Here is an interesting fact, shared by Becker's Healthcare, that backs up this claim: From the years 1990 to 2010 almost 10,000 medical malpractice settlements were paid as the result of "never events."

Taking this one step further, the same source says that as many as 50 wrong site procedures occur every week in the United States.

As you can see, this remains a major problem throughout the country, despite the fact that medical facilities are more careful and have access to more advanced technology than ever before.

As a patient, there are a few things you can do to better your position. Most importantly, you can review the procedure with your medical team on the day of the surgery as to make sure you are 100 percent clear of what they intend to do.

If you find yourself a victim of a wrong site surgery, the first thing you need to do is care for your health. This means deciding which steps to take next, as well as who you can turn to for assistance. From there, learn more about your legal rights.
