Know Your Rights If A Surgeon Has Performed The Wrong Surgery On You
With all of the checks and confirmations that occur leading up to surgery, it would seem nearly impossible for the surgeon to perform the wrong procedure or to operate on the wrong patient. It is quite alarming, however, to see the statistics that show the frequency with which these very mistakes happen.
