Surgery always involves risk, no matter how much it is needed. Risk increases quickly when negligent medical care providers fail to follow procedures that will prevent hospital-acquired infections.
One common and dangerous hospital-acquired infection is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). MRSA is caused by improper infection control like the use of unclean instruments, the failure to wash hands and tools, and the failure to properly protect surgical wounds during and after surgery. MRSA infections and injuries can worsen considerably when not detected and treated and can lead to amputation, wrongful death, and other injuries.

The risk of MRSA infections increases with patients who have weakened autoimmune systems and for patients with long-term hospital stays. Despite known risks, MRSA-related injuries are common and can be severe. Forced air warming systems, such as the Bair Hugger, may spread MRSA, especially during joint replacement surgery.
