Some common types of surgical errors

When a surgical error occurs in a North Carolina hospital, patients or their family members might wonder whether they can sue for malpractice. There are several types of surgical errors that could lead to this course of action. Even refusing surgery or some types of treatments could result in a lawsuit, such as if a medical facility refuses certain procedures to women or to transgender people because of religious beliefs.

Getting a second opinion for a medical diagnosis

North Carolina patients may be interested to learn that approximately 20 percent of those who seek a second opinion learn that they were originally misdiagnosed. The study, which was published in the Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice, determined that about 1 in 5 of the 300 patients researchers examined learned that they were given the wrong diagnosis when they sought additional advice from other health care professionals at the Mayo Clinic.
