Medical negligence can take many forms. One particularly devastating type of Chicago medical negligence occurs when there are hospital equipment errors, specifically, anesthesia equipment errors.Anesthesia comes with its own inherent risks and those risks are increased when you face equipment failure. Patients rely on safely being put to sleep and safely being brought out of sleep while undergoing surgery or any other type of invasive medical procedure. Therefore, safety measures must be taken when servicing and maintaining anesthesia equipment. These kinds of medical procedures also require the proper training of anesthesiologists who will operate the equipment.One instance when due diligence can mean the difference between a safe surgery and patient injury is the operation of flow meters. Flow meters regulate the amount of anesthesia going into a patient, so it is critical that they work correctly. While equipment failure can happen because of a defect, more often than not, anesthesia equipment errors are the result of medical professionals’ mistake. Medical professionals who use anesthesia equipment must feel comfortable that they know how to properly operate and use those tools. If not, the results can mean serious injuries to a patient.If you have been injured by anesthesia equipment errors or any other type of hospital equipment failure, you should contact a Chicago medical malpractice lawyer.
