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.
Improper Work Process
When it comes to surgery taking shortcuts can
be quite costly. Surgeons may sometimes skip
the necessary steps during surgery.
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.
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.
