Portland Attorney for Postoperative Care Errors
Surgery involves many risks. Surgical mistakes — such as the perforation of arteries and internal organs — internal bleeding and infections may compromise the health and life of the patient. Surgeons and nurses are supposed to closely monitor patients post-surgery and perform all necessary tests to ensure the patient is stable and on his or her way to recovery. Failure to properly monitor, and administer tests and mediations can put patients' lives at risk.
From our offices in Portland and Eugene, Miller & Wagner, LLP, helps clients throughout Oregon and southwestern Washington gain compensation for the injuries caused to them and their loved ones by post-operation errors.
Holding Hospitals Liable for Postoperative Errors
Many patients are unsure what caused their postoperative complication. At Miller & Wagner, LLP, we use independent medical experts to evaluate our clients' medical records and identify any postoperative care errors.
- Did the hospital properly monitor your vital signs?
- Were postoperative care instructions followed?
- Did doctors and nurses check for internal bleeding or infection?
- Were medications properly administered?
- Were steps taken to prevent blood clots?
- Did the hospital timely and properly respond to postoperative problems?
If any indication of negligence on the part of the hospital, surgeon, nurses or staff is present, we will hold the hospital liable.
