Cardiac Surgery Attorneys in Louisville, KY

Medical Malpractice Lawyers for the Injured in Jefferson County & Southern Indiana

The heart is a vital organ that keeps us alive; without a healthy beating heart, you can suffer symptoms ranging from chronic fatigue to shortness of breath, chest pain, palpitations, arrhythmias, dizziness, and more. Cardiac surgery, such as bypasses, are commonly-used procedures designed to alleviate heart disease symptoms or repair defective hearts, giving patients a new lease on life. However, when these surgeries go wrong due to the negligence of surgeons, anesthesiologists, or nurses, patients can suffer harmful injury and even death.

Cardiac Surgery Errors

Cardiac surgery requires medical experts trained to exacting standards when performing surgical procedures on the heart. They must also provide precision pre- and post-operative care as well. Risks always exist when you undergo any kind of surgery. Your risks should not be further increased by the carelessness or negligence of the medical team to whom you are entrusting your life. This means these medical professionals must act according to the accepted standards set by their profession to avoid errors that could result in severe consequences. When they fail to do so, their actions or omissions may entitle you to file a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit seeing appropriate damages for what you have suffered.

Heart surgery errors can include:

  • Operating on the wrong patient
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Leaving medical equipment behind inside the body
  • Severing or damaging a nerve
  • Damaging another organ or part of the body
  • Infection following surgery
  • Performing an unnecessary procedure
  • Using defective medical devices

As unbelievable as it may sound, errors such as operating on the wrong patient, leaving behind sponges, scalpels, and other equipment, making medication and anesthesia mistakes, and more occur all too frequently. The medical industry refers to such mistakes as “never events.” This means that they are unacceptable and should never occur. However, when doctors and medical staff fail to adhere to proper standards of care, no matter how unintended, they may be found guilty of negligence and malpractice.

Effects of Cardiac Surgery Errors

Such mistakes can result in:

  • Further health damage
  • Need for additional medical care, procedures, or surgeries
  • Additional pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Financial duress

Causes of Cardiac Surgery Mistakes

The causes of cardiac surgery mistakes can include non-optimum conditions for doctors and hospitals, such as:

  • Long hours creating overwork, stress, and fatigue
  • Lack of communication among staff
  • Inadequate staffing
  • Failing to follow proper medical protocol
