New Jersey Medical Malpractice Lawyers Report on Permanent Nerve Damage Caused By Improper Positioning During Surgery

Posted on

Surgical patients can suffer preventable injuries as a result of improper positioning during surgery. When medical staff use inadequate or improper padding in positioning an arm or leg during surgery, the resulting undue pressure can cause serious physical injuries and result in a medical malpractice claim. Improper positioning during surgery can cause permanent nerve damage, brachial injuries, muscular damage and chronic regional pain syndrome.

Courts have found hospitals, doctors and other medical staff responsible for injuries resulting from improper positioning. Each operation has its own unique positioning requirements, and it is the duty of the medical provider to ensure that the patient’s body is properly positioned, supported and protected during surgery.  In a recent case in Cleveland, Ohio, the jury awarded a heart surgery patient one million dollars in damages due to permanent numbness in the individual’s right arm and hand that was due to improper positioning.
