Common Examples of Hospital Mistakes
Hospital mistakes are all too common, unfortunately. Frequently, hospital mistakes have devastating consequences that can result in serious injury or death. In fact, one study indicates that an average of 195,000 people in the U.S. died due to potentially preventable, in-hospital medical errors in each of the years 2000, 2001 and 2002.
Some common hospital mistakes made by doctors, nurses and other medical staff can include:
- Medication errors, including improper drug prescriptions, improper dosage, pharmacist errors and mistakes made while administering the medication
- Obstetrical negligence, including oxygen deprivation, failure to treat complications such as jaundice and failure to respond to fetal distress
- Surgical errors, such as wrong-site surgeries, wrong surgical procedure and surgical instruments left in the patient’s body
- Improper interpretation of tests and laboratory results
