The Life-Altering Consequences Of Post-Operative Neglect

Post OperativeThe time following surgery is critical for the patient. Potentially life-threatening complications can develop in an instant. Constant monitoring is vital. The negligence of doctors, nurses or other medical personnel during this critical time period can lead to tragic consequences.

Examples of post-operative negligence include:

  • Failing to monitor for infection or sepsis
  • Failing to recognize post-operative internal bleeding
  • Failing to adequately monitor vital signs
  • Failing to promptly identify and treat blood clots and pulmonary embolisms

Any one of these failures can send an already vulnerable patient into a downward spiral of declining health. Unfortunately, by the time you discover the negligence, it may already be too late.
