Medical treatment is highly sought each day by countless individuals. Whether it is continual care for an individual that has an illness or it is a person that is injured and enters into the emergency department. In a medical setting there are many workers that are there for the purpose of caring and healing the sick and injured. Doctors take an oath as part of their job that they will offer patients a certain standard of care and many times they do. This is not always the case however, and some of them will fail to give adequate care that they should provide. This can be seen in different areas, from the day to day care of a patient to the surgical room. Surgery is an incredibly serious and potential dangerous thing to undergo. Surgeons are trained extensively to take great caution in their profession. They may become lax and make a mistake that could have been avoided if they had been focused enough.
