When The Cost Of Someone Else's Medical Mistake Is Amputation
Losing an arm or leg is traumatic. Knowing that the amputation might have been prevented makes the trauma even more difficult to understand. How and why did this happen?
- Were the appropriate tests done? Most amputations are medically necessary. There are cases, however, where a physician performed an amputation without sufficient cause.
- Did lack of post surgical follow-up cause the problem? When the surgeon or hospital medical professionals fail to monitor a surgical injury to ensure proper circulation or to fight infection, the situation could worsen to gangrene, necessitating amputation.
- Did the medical team act quickly? Often minutes matter in the effort to save a limb.
