Foreign Objects Left Behind During Surgery
Surgery is a major medical procedure for which a person should receive the highest degree of care and caution on behalf of the surgeon and the surgical staff. Unfortunately, a surgeon or his surgical team may leave a foreign object inside of the patient receiving the surgery. Such foreign objects include medical tools such as sponges, gauze, surgical tools, needles, and bandages inside of the patient.
Such negligence on behalf of the surgeon, the surgical team, or the hospital may lead to a worsened medical condition in the form of infections, severe damage to organs or physiological systems, pain, and even death.
Our law firm has a team of experienced medical and legal experts that will work together to determine the extent of the physical harm a patient has sustained as a result of the foreign object. If you feel that you or a loved one has been a victim of a foreign object, please contact our offices for immediate attention at 1-888-GINARTE.
