All forms of anesthesia — general, local, spinal or epidural — require skill in administration and pose patient risk. As such, anesthesiologists and certified nurse anesthetists (CRNA) are obligated to comply with accepted care standards. Strictly speaking, these professionals have a responsibility to ensure that specific medications are taken into account on an individual basis as well as the chemical effects of medications and the possible negative interactions with other prescribed and nonprescribed drugs. When these standards are deviated from, patients can be seriously injured and medical professionals can be held liable.
If you or a family member has been harmed due to anesthesia complication, you may be entitled to compensation.
