Postoperative Infections Resulting From Medical Malpractice
San Francisco Infection Malpractice Lawyer
Postoperative infections usually result from lack of control of the surgical or postoperative environment following surgery. A patient may not have been kept free from hospital microorganisms or sterile equipment might not have been used in surgical or nursing procedures. Specific professionals in the surgical environment have specific responsibilities for cleansing the surgical team and its environment from contamination. When these responsibilities are not executed properly or other contamination control disciplines become lax in hospitals, clinics and private practice areas, infections can result. When infections occur following surgical operations, the patient or a loved one should get the assistance of an experienced and capable San Francisco Medical Malpractice Lawyer.
