Surgeons use a wide array of surgical tools in their work. Advances in surgical technology have allowed them to perform surgery more effectively and efficiently. But human error poses a threat to patient health. When surgical tools are misused due to negligence, patients suffer the consequences.

All members of the surgical team are required to follow an established standard of care when it comes to the use of surgical tools. This includes surgeons, nurses, nurse assistants, and surgical technicians. Hospitals are required to set policies and procedures designed to ensure that this standard of care is followed at all times.
