Whether surgery is an elective procedure or one that is necessary to maintain life, a surgeon must use that degree of skill and learning ordinarily used by other surgeons in the same or similar circumstances. Not all mistakes are "known complications." However, many times, surgeons cite their mistakes as such or associate certain outcomes as a bad result." While it is true, surgeries do have certain known complications, there are also surgical events that should never happen. These events are known as "Never Events".
