Post-Operative Care Medical Malpractice Attorney
When a surgery is successful, the last thing a patient expects is to have something go wrong after-the-fact. However, we have seen many situations where a nurse or doctor did not properly monitor a patient after an operation, causing serious injuries. At the Melvin Law Firm, we offer sound advice and zealous representation to patients injured by medical malpractice.
Attorney Bailey Melvin is one of the few lawyers in North Carolina that focuses on medical malpractice law. We only accept a few cases a year so that he can give special attention to each case. When you are considering bringing a lawsuit for an injury caused by post-operative care, consider a law firm where clients are not numbers, but friends. Contact the Melvin Law Firm.
Negligence After Surgery
After an operation, medical professionals must closely watch vital signs to ensure a patient’s safe recovery. Yet, sometimes, one nurse takes care of a dozen post-op patients in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU). It is not surprising that errors occur when nurses are overworked and cannot give each patient the attention he or she needs.
We hold nurses, doctors and North Carolina hospitals accountable when medical professionals’ post-operative negligence causes serious injury or death. Post-operative care errors we have seen include:
- Failure to monitor vital signs
- Failure to diagnose complications from surgery
- Failure to prevent or treat blood clots / pulmonary embolism or internal bleeding
- Failure to prevent or treat infections
- Failure to follow post-operative care instructions
- Medication errors
