While no surgical error is common, some do occur more frequently than others. Some of those surgical errors include:
- Wrong-site surgery, in which surgeons operate on the wrong location. This is often the result of misreading charts or an inaccurate diagnosis;
- Procedural errors that occur during surgery, which can include mistakes with anesthesia or the use of equipment that is not properly sterilized; and
- Post-operative errors, which take place after the procedure and can include failure to monitor a patient and respond to complications properly or the improper administration of post-surgery medication.
