Family wins heart condition medical malpractice case

When a doctor negligently fails to properly diagnose an individual's symptoms, it can have serious or even fatal consequences for a patient. It can also have a major impact on the family of the patient. One of the roles of medical malpractice claims is to provide negligence victims and their families with relief to help mitigate these negative impacts. This can be seen in a recent case from Montana.

Partial loss of limbs may have been caused by hospital negligence

Last post, we discussed how important it is for emergency room patients to receive prompt medical care. This is especially the case for young children and infants. This is because certain medical conditions can spread quickly in these young patients and can have devastating effects if they are not treated in a timely manner. This can be seen in a tragic medical negligence case from California.

Hospital accused of wrongful death and ER negligence

When a person goes to an emergency room, it is very important that they receive prompt treatment and care. When these things are delayed due to negligence by a medical professional, it can cause extreme harm to a patient. Recently, a hospital in Florida has been sued for wrongful death in connection to alleged emergency room negligence.

Should Connecticut law regarding nurse practitioners be changed?

As we have discussed before, the medical system in Connecticut is facing struggles, some of which could negatively impact patient care. Some claim that a change to a Connecticut law concerning nurse practitioners (NPs) could help the state address these struggles.

Should recording equipment be allowed in delivery rooms?

Taping and photographing a child birth is a practice that parents have been engaged in since the advent of portable recording equipment. These recordings can provide parents with a keepsake of a monumental event in their family's life. Also, these recordings have provided some parents with the proof they needed to show that their child's birth injuries were caused by hospital wrongdoing.

Study looks at prescription painkiller errors

When a doctor prescribes a patient a medication, it is very important that they not make any errors. Prescription errors could expose patients to harm, such as dangerous side-effects. Recently, a study investigated doctor errors regarding prescription painkillers.
