Postoperative Care Malpractice
The minutes and hours after surgery prove crucial to the health of the patient. When physicians and other medical professionals fail to provide adequate care during postoperative recovery, patients can suffer severe complications and even wrongful death.
At Jacobs & Jacobs, we handle a wide range of medical malpractice lawsuits, including those involving postoperative care errors. Doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other medical professionals are responsible for monitoring a patient after surgery and taking appropriate action when necessary. Medical professionals are responsible for taking into account a patient's medical history, as that history may affect elements of the patient's postoperative care.
