Doctor accused of failing to properly treat stroke victim

When a person suffers from a serious condition like a stroke, prompt and correct medical treatment can be extremely important. When a doctor fails to properly provide this treatment, it can have grave results. Recently, a wrongful death case involving alleged negligent medical treatment of a stroke victim has arisen in Texas.

Doctors sued for failing to diagnose probable malignant mass

When a patient is suffering from an illness, it is very important that doctors provide him or her with a prompt and correct diagnosis. This is especially the case when it comes to cancer and similar conditions, as early detection can be essential to effective treatment. Recently, in West Virginia, a woman sued two doctors and a radiology company for failing to diagnose a probable malignant mass.

Errors Involving Small Doses of Medication Could Put Kids At

When a doctor administers a medication to a patient, it is very important that he or she measures out the correct dose. This is especially the case when medicine is given to young children and babies. Depending on the medication, an incorrect dose can lead to serious health problems. A recent study has indicated that infants and babies might be at an increased risk of receiving incorrect doses when it comes to certain medications.

Study Brings Treatment Used On Premature Infants Into Question

One would hope that doctors would only administer a treatment to a child when it has a fair chance of providing a real medical benefit. Recently, a Johns Hopkins Children's Center study brought into question the effectiveness of one treatment routinely given to premature infants to prevent birth injuries.

Connecticut Corrects Public Database's Malpractice Information

Last week, we discussed an article which reported that an online public database maintained by the Department of Public Health contained incorrect information regarding the malpractice histories of some Connecticut doctors. Since then, the department has reportedly identified what caused this problem and has fixed it. This incident brings up some interesting issues regarding the increasing use of computers in connection to medical matters.

Birth Injury Lawsuit Results In Settlement By Federal Government

The medical care a woman receives during a pregnancy can have major effects on the health of the woman and the child. Thus, one would hope that medical professionals would make sure to provide patients with quality care in these situations. Recently, the U.S. government settled a case involving a government medical facility that was accused of medical malpractice resulting in birth injuries.

State Malpractice Resource In Connecticut May Be Inaccurate

Picking a doctor can be a very difficult decision, as it can impact the quality of care a person receives. Thus, when a state entity provides doctor information that the public might use in making this important decision, one would hope the information is accurate. Recently, the accuracy of the medical malpractice information provided by one state resource in Connecticut has come into question.

Parents Claim Doctor Failed To Inform Them of Son's Test Results

In a past post, we addressed some of the issues that can arise when a doctor is accused of failing to inform a minor patient's parents of the child's test results. In Michigan, another case has arisen which touches on this topic. The case may lead to a wrongful death lawsuit.

Connecticut Board Revokes Doctor's License in Prescription Case

One action that a medical board sometimes takes when it finds that a doctor has committed a wrongdoing is revoking the person's license to practice medicine. Such a revocation recently occurred in Connecticut.
