Orlando Negligent Post-Operative Care Attorneys
Post-operative care depends largely on the type of surgery you have undergone. However, in general, the health care staff is responsible for making sure your vital signs are monitored for adverse effects of the medication you are receiving, signs you may be developing a blood clot, or indications of infection resulting from a surgical error.
Negligence in post-operative management can have serious consequences, including patients developing blood clots, having complications because of medication, or developing life-threatening infections. While not all negligent post-operative care results in these kinds of serious problems, some does cause debilitating injuries and even death.
If you or a family member has suffered because of negligent post-operative care, you could be the victim of medical malpractice and entitled to recover damages for your medical expenses, lost income, pain, and suffering. It is, however, very important to get help from an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.

Rights of Victims of Negligence in Post-Operative Management
Whether you are hospitalized or not, your surgical team has an obligation to ensure you are getting the follow-up care you need to regain your health after surgery. Typically, they will advise you on what pain medication to take and how frequently to take it, when to come back to their office, and what to do if any adverse symptoms occur.
Failure on the part of your surgical team to provide adequate post-operative care may be considered medical malpractice. Your medical team owes you a duty of care, and after surgery, their duty of care continues until such time as you are fully recovered from the surgical procedure. When your medical team fails in this duty and you suffer an additional medical issue as a result of that failure, you have the right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
