Help Prevent Surgical Errors: Tips from a Cleveland Medical Malpractice Attorney

Mellino Law Firm

Everyone has read or heard about a surgical mistake and its aftermath. Though you can’t prevent someone from making a mistake, you can be proactive in helping to prevent becoming the victim of medical malpractice.

Before your surgery, be sure to:

  • Ask what you can expect prior to the surgery;
  • Ask whether any non-surgical options are available;
  • Read the paperwork you are asked to sign and make sure you understand its implications;
  • Follow your doctor’s pre-surgery instructions; and
  • Make sure your name is visible and legible somewhere on your body.

You may also want to seek a second opinion, especially if you suspect that your doctor is under the influence.

Unfortunately, accidents happen in every profession, so protecting yourself from a mistake can only go so far. If you believe your doctor caused an injury, the medical malpractice attorneys at Mellino Law Firm welcome you to call (440) 276-3535 to schedule a free case evaluation.
