Each year thousands of people die or are injured due to hospital errors. It is ethical for a hospital to tell the patient or their family that an error was made, however they are not legally required to do so. In many cases there may be several people in the hospital who know about a mistake, but the error will remain unreported for fear of reprisal.
Hospital errors can be a result of sub-standard care caused by physicians, nurses, medical specialists, surgeons, technician or other hospital worker. It also applies to other health care providers such as dentists and nursing homes. Some examples of hospital errors include:
- Birth injuries
- Misreading of doctor's orders
- Anesthesia mistakes
- Prescribing unsafe medication
- Prescribing the wrong dose of medication
- Untreated post surgical infections
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to consult with a medical specialist
- Failure to order necessary tests or evaluate their results
- Leaving surgical instruments or sponges in body
- Surgical errors such as punctures or lacerations to surrounding organs
- Wrong site surgery
- Radiological errors
- Unnecessary surgery
