Properly administering anesthesia requites a great deal of training, skill and competence. That said, general, local, spinal and epidural anesthesia still presents risks. Anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists are required to adhere to care standards because of this. When they deviate, a patient is at great risk for injury. When they do sustain injuries, they are liable for all damages.
If you or someone close to you has been injured due to anesthesia error, it is important that you are fully compensated and are able to recover and hold the medical professionals responsible.
