Woman files medical malpractice lawsuit against facility

During any surgical procedure, medical professionals in Tennessee must take the necessary measures to prevent complications from occurring. Even if the procedure is minor, a complication could have a detrimental impact on the health of a patient, and in some cases, a similar incident could even cause permanent or fatal harm. A woman in another state has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a facility, claiming that negligence during a procedure led to the death of her husband.

According to the lawsuit, the man first visited the facility, exhibiting symptoms of a hiatal hernia. After consulting with a doctor, he was scheduled to undergo surgery to repair the hernia just over one month later. According to reports, complications during the surgery caused the man to begin hemorrhaging, and after going into cardiac arrest, he reportedly passed away.

The woman has since accused the facility of negligence and asserts that those who performed the operation were either unqualified or unable to provide an acceptable standard of care. A similar incident could be entirely avoidable if the necessary precautions are taken. The presence of negligence during any manner of surgical procedure can have disastrous consequences that could leave a patient in need of long-term or permanent treatment or, in some cases, leave a family to grieve over an untimely loss.

Families who experience loss due to the negligent actions of a doctor or medical facility may wish to explore their available legal avenues, but they likely need guidance in the process. By speaking with an experienced attorney, a person in Tennessee could obtain advice on the best course of action with which to proceed. An attorney can evaluate the incident and assist a client in pursuing the full amount of compensation achievable through a medical malpractice claim.
