CT medical malpractice emergency surgeryOne of the ways Connecticut medical malpractice can occur is when there is an error in performing a procedure on a patient. A recent study out of Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston reports that there are seven types of operations that occur in four out of five emergency general surgery deaths.

These surgeries aim to deal with gastrointestinal problems, soft tissue infections, and hernias:

  1. Partial removal of the small intestine
  2. Partial removal of the large intestine
  3. Appendix removal
  4. Separating organs that have fused together
  5. Gallbladder removal
  6. Repairing a bleeding or torn ulcer
  7. Open abdominal surgery

Emergency surgery is inherently more dangerous because it is performed when the patient is in a life-threatening situation with little to no preparations for the surgery. If you or a loved one is questioning the level of care received during an emergency surgery that resulted in permanent injury, including death, find out if you have a Connecticut medical malpractice case.
