What medical mistakes happen most frequently?

Medication, diagnostic, and surgical errors are among the most frequent medical errors. Medication errors happen when a medical professional prescribes the incorrect medication, administers the incorrect dosage, or commits other medication administration mistakes.

Medical Negligence & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Surgical errors happen when a healthcare practitioner makes a mistake during a surgical procedure, and diagnostic errors happen when a healthcare expert delays or fails to diagnose a condition. These mistakes may cause severe injury or even death.

Medical Negligence Case Sharon Jones

Sharon Jones got a hysterectomy in 2014, which is a typical operation to remove the uterus. But things didn’t go as planned, and a surgical sponge was unintentionally left within her abdomen. The surgical sponge is typically removed before the procedure is finished and is used to absorb fluids during the process.

Sharon Jones endured tremendous abdominal discomfort and a foul discharge for several months as a result of the surgical blunder. She eventually needed a second procedure to remove the sponge since it had seriously harmed her abdominal tissue.

Sharon Jones made the decision to sue the hospital and the surgical team accountable for the malpractice after that. Her legal team contended that the surgical staff’s negligence and disregard for protocol throughout the treatment led to the sponge being left behind.

After a protracted legal struggle, the matter was finally settled for an undisclosed sum. Although the precise settlement sum was kept confidential, it probably compensated Sharon Jones’s medical bills, lost wages, and other losses resulting from the medical error.
