How Do Surgical Errors Occur?
Advances in medical technology have made surgery safer today than at any other time in history. Yet, despite those advances, patients are injured or killed needlessly by surgical errors every year. These errors happen at the hand of a negligent surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist or another medical professional.
