Failure to Properly Monitor During Surgery

The weeks, days and hours leading up to surgery can be nerve wracking for any patient. Most patients remind themselves that surgeons are highly trained and educated medical professionals who will follow the standard of care before, during and after surgery. Additionally, most patients also know that there is a medical team in the operating room assisting the surgeon and keeping a watchful eye on the patient.

As a patient or as the family member of a patient who was injured during surgery due to being improperly monitored, it is very natural to feel confusion and anger. With so much knowledge and so many people in the room, how did this mistake ever happen?
