A good surgeon and nursing staff will protect their patient at all phases of an operation. This includes fully preparing the patient for surgery, monitoring his or her status and protecting his or her well-being during the operation, and making sure he or she begins the recovery process properly during the postoperative phase.When proper care is left in the operating room, the results can be tragic. Postoperative complications and infections take many lives each and every year, and most of these incidents are entirely preventable through proper care and effective communication.
You Should Be Compensated For Postoperative Negligence
If you or a loved one has suffered harm as a result of postoperative negligence, you can rely on Janet Izzo — lawyer and founder of Izzo Law Office — to seek maximum compensation for the damages you have suffered.
Janet Izzo does more than represent her clients in postoperative negligence claims. She empowers them. She encourages them to take control over their legal and medical rights, becoming a second “advocate.”
Postoperative Nursing Negligence
In the postoperative period, nurses are the patient’s lifeline. Nurses are expected to monitor the patient’s condition and relay information to the doctors. When a patient emerges from the recovery room after a laparoscopic surgery and has pain, shortness of breath, fever or another symptom, it is critical that the nurse communicates that to the doctors.
Thorough observation and quick action can mean the difference between life and death when complications such as infections are involved. If hospital negligence is responsible for your injuries or the loss of a loved one, our team will fight for a settlement or jury award that fully compensates you now and in the future.
