Clinic ordered to pay $29M for delayed diagnosis

Connecticut patients potentially dealing with a misdiagnosis may be interested to learn that a clinic was ordered to pay about $29 million in compensation after specialists were unable to diagnose a patient's condition. The jury determined that the woman's condition, although rare, could have been treated without major complications if the clinic had taken measures to provide her with a timely diagnosis and treatment.

Measures to identify the correct patient

It is important for Connecticut health care professionals to be sure that they are treating the correct patient. Problems with patient care such as surgical errors and misdiagnosis can occur if hospital workers do not verify that they have the right patient beyond just one form of identification.

Hospital water systems pose Legionnaires' disease risk

Hospitals in Connecticut and around the country are concerned after a report has shown Legionnaires' disease present in the water supplies of a number of healthcare facilities. The disease is a type of pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria. It is preventable but can be deadly.

Anticoagulant use a risk for nursing home residents

For Connecticut families who cannot provide the care their elderly loved ones need, putting them in a nursing home may be one of the few options available. Although nursing home facilities are supposed to be able to provide proper medical care to their residents, reports suggest that many are not properly administering anticoagulants or monitoring patients after giving them such a drug.

Causes of strokes

According to statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, strokes kill more than 130,000 people a year in Connecticut and the rest of nation. This figure equates to 1 out of every 20 deaths in the U.S. Although every stroke that occurs is not fatal, they can eventually result in death or any number of lifelong disabilities.
