Anesthesia is a highly technical field of medicine. The advances in this field have enabled life-saving surgeries to be performed, which would be impossible without the valuable work of the anesthesiologists. When the anesthesiologists, nurse, doctor or other medical professional administering these powerful medications fail to live up to the standard of care set by the profession they are guilty of medical malpractice or medical negligence.

Following the standard procedures established and proven to work when administering powerful drugs to patients can prevent all of these consequences from happening. Doctors, dentists, anesthesiologists and nurses are trained in the proper administration of the drugs so when they fail to live up to their responsibilities, they should be held accountable. A medical malpractice suit acts to do just that. The consequences of these kinds of errors can be serious for an individual or family. They can add substantial medical costs and treatments, cause permanent injury and even death.
