Accidental cuts and tears from medical treatment


During some complex medical procedures, there's a chance that a part of the patient's body will be cut unintentionally. Sometimes, it can't be avoided. Average or lower rates of accidental cuts and tears may be a sign of that the hospital's health care professionals are using good techniques to protect their patients from preventable cuts and tears.
