Hospitals and surgeons are financially liable for injuries and deaths that occur as a result of their negligence. Due to staff shortages, turnover, and poor communication, nurses and hospital orderlies sometimes give the wrong medication to a patient, fail to maintain a sanitary environment, and occasionally mistake one patient for another. As a result, patients develop health complications or fail to receive the care needed to prevent their conditions from worsening. In the case of surgical errors, departures from standard treatment protocols on the part of surgeons can result in botched procedures, disfigurement, and complications during surgery.
