Adult Operating Room Fires

Surgical ErrorsOperating room fires are completely preventable. The FDA has developed detailed safety guidelines that, when followed properly, make these fires obsolete. However, due to process errors within a hospital, mistakes are still made.

According to the FDA, three very volatile elements are always present in an operating room: an ignition source, a fuel source and an oxidizer. An unqualified or under-qualified hospital staff person would not understand how to avoid striking the balance between the three, leading to a recipe for disaster. These fires are horrific and they leave dismemberment and death in their wake.

Medicare classifies these preventable incidents as “never risks;” because they are completely preventable, and a process is in place to ensure this, Medicare will not cover a patient who is victim to an operating room fire.

Attorneys With Experience Handling Operating Room Fire Litigation

At Cirignani Heller & Harman, LLP, we hone in on process errors, like operating room fires in adult patients and institutional liability throughout Chicago, Illinois. Many medical negligence firms will engage in a lawsuit at any cost, without seeing the bigger picture. At our firm, we are determined to not only obtain the compensation our clients deserve but also make serious headway on impacting the systems and processes that caused the operating room fire.

After spending several years analyzing these preventable process errors, our attorneys have discovered that a lack of qualification is what ultimately causes the operating room fires. In an effort to make more of a profit, hospitals are not training the surgeons and anesthesiologists in fire prevention. This is a serious error in the way the hospital’s system works, and it needs to be changed so that lives can be saved.

If you or a loved one has experienced or died from an operating room fire, the attorneys at Cirignani Heller & Harman, LLP, are determined get the best possible compensation for you and your family while offering you the compassion you deserve.
