When anesthesiologists fail to administer the cocktail carefully or neglect to monitor your vital signs during and after sedation, they may cause unnecessary harm.
Some of the most common anesthesia errors include:
- incorrect dosage;
- failure to check the patient for allergies;
- delaying administration;
- neglecting to monitor the patient; and
- failing to check for interactions with other medications.
Both oversedation and under sedation can cause trauma, serious injury, and long-term complications. Further treatment, hospital stays, rehabilitation, and lost wages can amount to significant expenses you shouldn’t have to pay. A medical malpractice attorney can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
