As a medical professional, they are to provide a minimum standard of care in his/her area. Common mistakes include leaving sponges, instruments, or other objects in patient; operating on the wrong part of the body; medication errors; or post-surgical infections, including the failure to diagnose properly.

If you believe that your surgery, treatment, post-surgical treatment, etc. was not properly done by a medical professional, it is important that you seek legal counsel.
