Risk Management

Hemorrhage Associated With Ophthalmic Procedures

Ophthalmologists routinely warn patients that ophthalmic surgery could result in infection, vision loss, and hemorrhage. OMIC claims data indicates that ophthalmologists who do not properly screen patients for bleeding risks and manage hemorrhage when it occurs often face malpractice lawsuits. An OMIC closed case study of hemorrhage following blepharoplasty that resulted in a large settlement is presented to highlight errors in management that led to blindness and a subsequent lawsuit. Many other aspects of the prevention and management of hemorrhage deserve attention.
