here are risks associated with every operation. No surgery is risk free; however, competent surgical care can help avoid many of those risks. Surgical safety rule violations may occur during an operation or during pre and postoperative care. They can cause injuries to nearby anatomic structures and hemorrhage infections. Other violations involve surgery on the wrong part of the body or organ perforation. Surgical safety rule violations can occur in any type of procedure and can be as overt as a doctor using contaminated instruments or leaving surgical tools in the body. The following are the types of operations in which patients are at risk of surgical safety rule violations:
- Cesarean Section
- Gastric Bypass
- Thoracic Surgery
