Spinal Epidural Hematoma Program Description
An undiagnosed spinal epidural hematoma may result in devastating permanent injuries – paralysis and incontinence. The risks are increasing as more surgeries and procedures, including pain management with epidural catheters, are being performed and have the potential for the development of spinal epidural hematomas.
Liability for spinal epidural hematoma may fall on the shoulders of the nurses and physicians associated with a failure to diagnose or a delay in diagnosis of the hematoma. How does this dreaded complication happen? Two experienced legal nurse consultants explain the anatomy, risk factors, and the standards of medical and nursing care related to spinal procedures and epidural catheters.
