As an Indiana medical malpractice lawyer, I am regularly contacted by people who have developed infections following medical procedures. These infections can be from many types of bugs such as staph or strep. No matter what the particular infection is, these post surgical infections can have serious consequences and can be life threatening.
When thinking about these cases, it is important to remember that infections can develop from most any surgical procedure. Even when medical care providers do everything correctly, post surgical infections can still result. Therefore, just because a patient develops an infection does not mean that any of the doctors or nurses did anything wrong.
