Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorneys Well-Versed In Postoperative Care Errors Cases
After surgery, a medical team is supposed to be present to observe a patient for any signs of bleeding or other distress. An accidental perforation of an artery or internal organ can result in life-threatening complications, including internal bleeding and dangerous infections. If a medical device such as a stent or pacemaker was implanted as part of the surgery, medical staff must be vigilant for signs of blockage or equipment failure.
At the Chicago law firm of Anesi, Ozmon,, we fight for the interests of individuals and families who have been hurt as a result of negligent postoperative care. Since 1955, our attorneys have been holding doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff accountable for their medical errors. We know how to assess your claim, and we will not settle for anything less than what your claim is worth.
Illinois Lawyers Helping Families Recover From Medical Error Malpractice
Right after surgery, a nurse is responsible for monitoring a patient. The nurse is responsible for immediately communicating any increase in heart rate, drop in blood pressure, swelling in the abdomen, or other signs of distress with a doctor.
Surgical mistakes don’t always show up immediately. It can take days, weeks, or even longer for complications to become apparent. Surgeons, cardiologists, and hospitals are responsible for monitoring a patient after a surgical procedure, including reviewing follow-up EKGs. Inadequate care following a procedure can result in life-altering injuries and may even be fatal.
