Summerlin Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada is notifying patients who underwent surgical treatment for prostate cancer using the da Vinci robotic surgery system that certain components recommended by the manufacturer were not properly being used during the disinfection process.
Currently, the notification process is designed to alert patients whose physicians used the robotic machine of the possibility of being exposed to infection by Summerlin Hospital’s robotic surgery systems.
Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedure
The minimally invasive surgical procedure has gained popularity with both doctors and patients to perform and undergo prostate cancer surgery safely while enhancing patient recovery and outcome. Unfortunately, the hospital’s negligence in the disinfection process may have caused infections in patients who were seeking a positive medical experience from their physician’s medical recommendations.
Other hospitals may be following suit, ensuring that all patients who underwent a prostate surgery procedure using the da Vinci robotic surgery machine know that they may also be at risk of exposure to infection.
