Can a doctor's apology leave them liable in litigation?

Imagine that a loved one of yours has just died even though doctors promised that they would do everything they could to save their life. After being told about your loved one's fate, one of the doctors extends their sympathies by apologizing for your loss. If you're like some people, then this gesture may leave you feeling both comforted and agitated. Here's why.

5 examples of medication errors that could happen in Connecticut

Back in August, we talked with our readers about the importance of seeking the help of a lawyer after experiencing a medication error. As we explained in that blog post, medication errors can happen in any hospital, in any state. Even here in Connecticut. And whether it results in injury or not, it is still an error that needs to be addressed and handled properly.

3 places within a hospital you will most likely see mistakes

Whether you're at a small-town clinic or a state-of-the-art healthcare facility, there are certain standards that all facilities must meet. That's because not only do patients expect to receive the best care possible but state and federal laws demand this high standard of care as well. And if these standards are not met, mistakes can occur, which is not something any of our readers ever want to experience in their lifetime.

How a medical mistake can lead to big changes in quality of care

As we have said before on this blog, medical mistakes happen all around us in hospitals from Connecticut to the West Coast. While some medical mistakes are minor and do not result in the injury of a patient, this isn't the case every time. And as you can imagine, all it takes is one mistake to change a patient's life forever.
