Surgical fires remain a problem in operating rooms across the country

In April, we wrote about a woman who filed a lawsuit against a physician and hospital after she suffered third-degree burns on her stomach from a surgical fire during a cesarean section. Although this seems like it would be an isolated incident, Baltimore residents may be shocked to find out that the Food and Drug Administration says about 550 to 650 surgical fires occur each year in operating rooms all over the county.
