The 4 common reasons for surgical errors

  1. 1. The 4 Common Reasons For Surgical Errors
  2. 2. Insufficient Preoperative Planning A surgeon should be well prepared for surgery that includes reviewing, and preparing for, any complications that are likely to occur. The nurses and assistants should be properly prepared to ensure all the necessary equipments are ready and easily available when needed.
  3. 3. Improper Work Process When it comes to surgery taking shortcuts can be quite costly. Surgeons may sometimes skip the necessary steps during surgery.
  4. 4. Poor Communication A number of critical errors are caused due to failure to communicate properly. For instance, a surgeon may mark wrong site for surgery or make sure equipments are handled properly. There can also be lack of communication about proper dosage of a patient’s medicine.
  5. 5. Fatigue Fatigue is a common issue, as the surgeons have to work in long shifts which results in fatigue. Tired people make more mistakes as when compared with well-rested people.
