Anaesthetic awareness during surgery to repair pelvic floor – £16,500

Mrs Sams was undergoing surgery for the repair of her pelvic floor. During the operation she regained consciousness for a period of between 8 and 15 minutes and was able to see her reflection in the theatre lights, feel incisions and hear voices. She suffered a severe stress reaction after the operation.

We pursued a claim for the psychiatric injury suffered by Mrs Sams as a result of the hospital’s failure to ensure that she was properly anaesthetised.
