Ten Things That Should Never Happen In An Operating Room

There is much that can go wrong during surgery, and not all injuries sustained in the operating room can be blamed on medical negligence. However, some mistakes should never be made and display severe negligence on the part of physicians and other medical professionals and organizations.

  2. Instruments left behind in the patient's body
  3. Unnecessary surgery
  4. Doctors operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  5. Unsanitary conditions leading to infections
  6. Injuries due to faulty equipment maintenance
  7. Injuries caused by doctors using the wrong instruments for the surgery
