Facts about U.S. Surgical Errors

According to an eight-year study conducted by safety experts at Johns Hopkins Medicine, medical errors account for 10 percent of all deaths and are the third highest cause of U.S. deaths. Among these errors are surgical mistakes in which thousands of patients are injured every year. One of the most common surgical errors is when an object such as a clamp, gauze, pad, or scalpel is left inside the body after surgery. This mistake can cause serious pain, infection, and even death.

Patients who are injured due to surgical errors have a much higher risk of death as well as the need for further medical treatment or surgeries.

Surgical errors can include:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • The accidental severing or cutting of nerves, organs, or other body parts
  • Leaving medical objects behind in the body
  • Post-operative care mistakes
  • Removing healthy body parts
  • Performing surgery on the body part
  • Performing surgery on the wrong patient
