Surgical errors consist of anything which has harmed you and fell below the medical standard of care such as the surgeon operating on the wrong body part or injuring a nerve. Sometimes, people have found they still have a piece of medical equipment in them such as a sponge or a medical instrument.

The reasons these errors happen can be due to many things such as improper training, fatigue or even drugs/alcohol.
