Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Discusses Surgical Fires
As an experienced Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney, clients will ask me about the frequency of surgical fires. Surgical fires are not common. In fact there are two different kinds of surgical fires, an on-patient surgical fire and an in-patient surgical fires. This means whether or not the fire happens outside the patient’s body or inside the patient body. Fires that occur outside the patient body should never occur, they are considered never events. The only fires that can occur that meet the appropriate standard of care are fires that occur inside the patient body. For example, in response to bowel gas.
