Tampa Medical Malpractice Lawyer Discusses Surgical Fires
Many people have questions 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 and that just 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 with care that meets the appropriate standard of care are fires that occur inside the patient body, for example in response to bowel gas or that kind of thing but on-patient fires should never occur, and when they do you should contact a medical malpractice attorney experienced in handling surgical fires.
