Anesthesia Dosage Errors

Ann Arbor, Michigan, Anesthesia Dosage Error Lawyers

When a patient enters the hospital for a routine medical procedure, he or she is usually administered general anesthesia by a nurse anesthetist and anesthesiologist. If the patient's husband or wife is told the procedure will take about 30 minutes, it is normal to worry if the patient is still in surgery after an hour or more. The person in the waiting room has every right to be stunned and angered if they find out their loved one has passed away during what was supposed to be a routine medical procedure. Sadly, in these cases where a patient has been given the wrong dosage of anesthesia, the lost loved one has become a victim of negligent medical care.

Anesthesiology errors are devastating and can result in a severely disabled patient or even wrongful death. A mistake like this can result in the irreplaceable loss of a lifetime of memories and love.

Wrong Dosage Errors

While there are risks associated with any procedure that requires anesthesia, anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists must practice with a standard level of care. If they fail to meet this standard and act carelessly, patients suffer the consequences. If a loved one has been injured or has died as the result of anesthesiology negligence, damages must be sought.

Wrong anesthesia dosage errors can cause:

  • Brain trauma
  • Paralysis
  • Nerve damage
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Coma
  • Death

Many times these errors occur when a patient has been poorly monitored or if there has been improper documentation in medical records. In some cases, medical staff falsely records chart information or tampers with medical records in order to hide their mistakes. By using leading experts in the industry, we will seek out the truth of what really happened in your particular case.
