Sadly, several people are hurt by injuries sustained within the medical profession each year. If this has happened to you, you may need anaesthetist injury advice.
Due to the nature of the work undertaken in hospitals, most injuries suffered by anaesthetists are caused as a result of contact with hazardous substances, potentially harmful tools or from faulty, malfunctioning machinery.

Anaesthetist injury advice
Unfortunately, no amount of preventative measures can eliminate the risk of injury, especially in a fast-paced hospital environment. Sometimes accidents are inevitable. However, in cases where injuries are sustained at the fault of someone else – such as through a lack of supervision, faulty or badly regulated equipment or poorly maintained locations – you may be entitled to financial compensation. Don’t worry that by placing a claim you will damage the hospital personally; their insurance policies will cover your claim and are in place for this very purpose.
Although there are many safety regulations in place, the varied role of an anaesthetist, the nature of a medical environment, the wide array of patients and the machinery and substances used there means that sometimes accidents do happen.
The majority of injuries are caused by
- Poor maintenance of machinery or surroundings,
- Ejections from machinery,
- Exposure to hazardous substances or materials,
- Faulty, unfit for purpose machinery or tools,
- Dangerous machinery or tools,
- Poor levels of understanding of health and safety guidelines, e.g. obstructions of fire exits, inadequate evacuation procedures or assistance,
- Substandard supervision or training,
- Too few staff on hand,
- Violent patients.
It is of crucial importance that machines are maintained regularly and that all health and safety guidelines are adhered to. Supervision over patients and an awareness of your surroundings at all times also lowers the risks of accidents and injuries.
