Professionals Must Uphold a Standard of Care
Doctors are professionals, and just like any professionals, they can make mistakes. No one wants to sue their doctor. We all understand that doctors are charged with important tasks and do a great deal of good. However, architects, accountants, lawyers and other professionals are held to the standard of care of their profession. Doctors are not an exception.
If your post-surgical complication stems from a doctor or nurse who has not met the standard of care, you may be facing serious injuries or health risks. Post-surgical complications can stem from many different issues:
- A doctor has failed to follow up
- Nurses have difficulty getting a hold of a doctor while the patient experiences complication
- Serious infection
- Nursing care after the fact does not meet the standard of care
- Failure to adequately monitor bleeding from a surgery
