Postoperative Negligence in Memphis - doctors in an hospital room

Postoperative care is the monitoring and after-procedure care that a patient receives following a surgery or treatment. It is the responsibility of a doctor to monitor the status of a patient while in a post-op room and through subsequent checkups after a procedure. If a doctor fails to adequately monitor a patient or fails to notice symptoms, that patient may face serious complications. Healthcare professionals that fail to monitor a patient after surgery may be held liable for incurred injuries through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

  • Postoperative Care Malpractice

    Through our extensive experience, the attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have noticed certain types of infections, illnesses, and conditions that commonly arise from postoperative negligence. These are:

    • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
    • Sepsis
    • Necrotizing fasciitis
    • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
    • Post-op internal bleeding
    • Staphylococcus (Staph) infections
    • Bloodstream infections
    • Organ perforation that went unnoticed
    • Blood clots or pulmonary embolism
    • Infections at the site of surgery
    • Tissue necrosis (death)
    • Viral infections
    • Respiratory infections like pneumonia
    • Peritonitis

    These infections can occur naturally, or they can occur due to errors by medical professionals, unsterilized or contaminated surgical devices, unhygienic surgical environment, polluted bandages or coverings, or improper prescription of antibiotics intended to stave off infection.

  • What Constitutes Medical Negligence?

    A doctor is responsible for monitoring a patient for complications that arise from surgery or treatment, preventing and treating infections, monitoring vital signs, giving detailed instructions to the patient for post-surgical care, and correctly prescribing medicine to the patient to aid in the healing process and prevent complications. If medical professionals fail in performing any of these duties because they did not meet the accepted standard of medical care, then they may be held liable for injuries that come as a result.
