Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Explains a Surgical Time Out

You may want to know what a surgical time out is. A time out procedure will be held before your surgical procedure is conducted to make sure that you’re the right patient, that the procedure is being performed to the right body part, that all safety precautions have been taken to avoid surgical fires and any other harm that might occur to you as the patient during the procedure. All of the providers in the room should answer aloud and participate in the time out procedure and your surgical facility whether it be in a free standing surgical center or a hospital should have policies and procedures that relate to the time out.
