Connecticut Medical Malpractice: When Complications Happen Outside the Hospital

Friday, January 26th, 2018 by | Posted In: Hospital Negligence, Medical Malpractice

A Bloomfield woman was recently airlifted by helicopter to Hartford Hospital after some complications during a tonsillectomy. The procedure was being held in a surgical center. If complications arise during a procedure that does not take place in a hospital that leads to a significant, permanent injury, this may be considered Connecticut medical malpractice.

If you or a loved one is scheduled to undergo a surgical procedure outside of the hospital, you may consider asking these questions:

  1. Are you prepared to handle every complication that may arise?
  2. In the event of a complication, what is your protocol?
  3. What staff will be present during my procedure?

As the patient, you have the right to know what staff and what the protocols will be should a complication arise. If you or your loved one was injured as the result of a surgical procedure, contact our firm immediately. Our Connecticut medical malpractice team consists of doctor/attorney Bob Messey and nurse/attorney Gayle Sullivan who will begin an immediate legal and medical investigation.
