A surgeon’s job doesn’t end when an operation is completed. A patient needs close monitoring and proper care during the post-operative period to ensure that timely healing is taking place. (Please also see our section on anesthesia errors, which can also play a part in surgical injuries.)
If complications develop that are not promptly identified and addressed, devastating consequences may occur, including brain damage, infection, severe bleeding, suffocation or even death.
The attorneys at Kolsby Gordon have a thorough understanding of the duties and responsibilities of hospital personnel to a patient during the post-operative period, and have litigated numerous cases on behalf of victims in Philadelphia and beyond who have suffered lifelong injuries as the result of avoidable mistakes.
