Wrong-Site Surgery: A Preventable Error

Operating on the wrong part of a person’s body is a mistake that should never happen.

 While wrong-site surgery is rare, the most commonly occurring types include:

  • Wrong-side surgery
  • Wrong-digit surgery
  • Wrong-vertebra surgery

Wrong-site surgery may be caused by misinformation being passed along to the surgeon by the hospital or team staff members or from the misperception by the surgeon during the procedure. To eliminate the possibility of mistakes, hospitals should have multiple, independent checks of the surgery to be done and the area of surgery. Marking the area of surgery on the patient’s body with bright markings can prevent mistakes.

Our attorneys thoroughly investigate and prosecute cases of wrong-site surgery by searching for the causes of error in medical logs and records.
