Infections Acquired During Surgery

Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Queens

Unfortunately, hospital acquired infections are a common occurrence. While they can be harmful and even deadly to patients, they become even worse when they are a result of unsanitary surgical practices. These infections can cause necrosis, or death, of the tissue surrounding the surgical site. This is an extremely painful and dangerous condition. The use of these can all lead to infections:

  • Unsanitary surgical tools
  • Contaminated Operating Rooms
  • Contaminated gloves
  • Unwashed hands of medical staff

While there are many safeguards in place to prevent infection in the operating room, sometimes surgeons fail to follow the correct practices, which can have painful or even fatal results.
