Symptoms of normal recovery or complication: The risks of postoperative care

Although patients are exposed to many risks in the preoperative phase of care (diagnosis and treatment selection) and during a procedure, the authors of this article found that some of the most dangerous risks exist in the postoperative stage. This article focuses on claims against surgeons that arose from care provided in the postoperative period, explores the causes and effects of postoperative complications, and describes lessons learned from the study and offers recommendations on steps to take to avoid unnecessary litigation.
