Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Discusses Avoiding Wrong Site Surgeries
As an experienced Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney, I am regularly asked by surgeons how to avoid wrong site surgeries. Your surgical team has an obligation to avoid wrong site surgeries. This means that prior to any incision being made that a time out will be taken. During that time out you may not be aware, you may already be sedated but a time out will be conducted to make sure that it’s the right patient, that we know what body part the surgical procedure is being performed to and that all in the room agree to go forward with the surgical procedure to the appropriate body part.
