Maryland Nursing Home Anesthesia Malpractice Injuries 

There are two very common types of anesthesia malpractice injuries. They are:

Anesthesia Wrongful Death The point to anesthesia is to numb the body so that the patient does not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure. The body and its functions are intentionally slowed nearly to the point of death. If proper procedures, protocol and standards of care are not adhered to it is possible for a patient to die from incorrect anesthesia dosages. 

Anesthesia Awareness Sometimes a patient will be administered anesthesia and it will appear as though they are under. This may not be the case as they are actually awake, cognizant of their surroundings and can hear the conversations in the operating room. What they cannot do to the paralyzing agents they are given is move or communicate this to the surgeons and medical team. 

Anesthesia awareness victims may suffer from post traumatic stress disorder, nightmares, insomnia, flashbacks, paranoia and other symptoms associated with extremely traumatic and painful events.
