Anesthesia Malpractice Is Very common in Hospitals and Skilled Nursing Facilities
Modern research indicates that anesthesia medical malpractice accounts for a tremendous amount of medical malpractice / neglect cases in the State of California and all over the United States. Anesthesia issues, based upon Neglect and Medical Malpractice are life threatening and can cause serious and catastrophic injury. We at the Peck Law Group have the experience, tenacity, and know how to handle these life threatening cases and to get you the results that are warranted.
Improper charting and documentation may be the main reason that anesthesia malpractice occurs. Proper charting is the true way of noting that any patient has received proper care. Most long-term care facilities have policies and procedures which dictate how anesthesia cases must be documented. The failure to document correctly could cause problems including death and may be cause to hold the medical provider liable for breach of the standard of care.

Most people tend to think that anesthesia malpractice only takes place in the operating room; however, this isn’t always the case. Anesthesia malpractice has been known to happen while the patient is being prepared for surgery, after surgery and even while patients are in the recovery room. It can also take place during childbirth and during even the simplest of dental procedures.
