Medical Negligence

Post-Operative Care Claims

There will be a period of rest, relaxation and recovery following any kind of surgical procedure, but this time is actually when patients could be at most risk. After surgery patients are prone to developing infections or other complications, and if these are not identified and treated the consequences can be devastating.

Mistakes in post-operative care

The time after an operation is a risky period; a patient will often need to be closely monitored to ensure their body has recovered fully from any anaesthetic and the procedure itself. Common complications in the period after an operation include:

  • Wound infection/other infection
  • Low blood sugar levels
  • Sickness
  • Severe pain
  • Shock
  • Blood loss
  • Dehydration
  • Fever
  • Problems with bowel movements
  • Haemorrhage

If it can be proven that any post-surgery complications occurred as the result of clinical negligence it is likely that you will be able to put forward a claim for compensation. Clinical negligence in this instance could include:

  • A failure to properly monitor a patient
  • Mistakes made during tests
  • Failure to properly report test results
  • Improper care/medication
