Brain surgery is performed by a neurosurgeon, a medical doctor who specializes in ailments related to the brain and nervous system, such as strokes, seizures, tumors, brain injuries, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
When surgery is required to treat an ailment, the neurosurgeon works with a group of medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, and other hospital employees. Medical malpractice occurs when the treatment provided does not meet accepted standards of care. Anyone involved in the procedure may be held liable for the harm a patient endures, including hospital administrators responsible for hiring personnel and creating a safe and effective treatment environment.
Examples of surgical malpractice include:
- Improperly sanitized equipment
- Intoxicated doctors or staff
- Medication errors
- Negligent hiring
- Inadequate staffing
- Anesthesia errors
- Communication errors
- Performing the wrong procedure
- Failure to monitor vital signs
- Inadequate safety protocols
- Surgical equipment left behind
- Failure to recognize complications
- Lack of training for medical equipment
- Damaged or poorly functioning medical equipment
