How Do Anesthetic Errors Happen?
Anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA) are required follow a legal standard of care when administering anesthesia to their patients. Physicians must be mindful of a patient’s medical history, pre-existing conditions, and allergies. If a patient is injured because doctors failed to properly administer anesthetic and monitor the patient, it may constitute medical malpractice.
Here is a list of ways someone can be hurt by anesthetic:
- Too much or too little anesthetic
- Being administered the wrong type of anesthetic
- Suffering an allergic reaction to anesthetic
- Doctors failing to monitor the patient’s vital signs while under anesthesia
- Physicians using faulty anesthetic equipment
- Caregivers improperly using anesthetic machines
