Pharmacy accused of committing medication error

It is very important for pharmacies to not commit negligent errors when filling prescriptions for individuals. This is because these types of prescription medication errors can cause individuals great harm. No person should have to be exposed to health risks because a pharmacy acted negligently when filling a prescription for him or her.

Nursing Home Falls Are Common...and Preventable

When the elderly fall, they usually sustain more than just a bruise or two. Many seniors end up breaking bones, fracturing hips and even sustain head injuries due to the frail nature of their bones. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, there are about 380,000 hip fracture cases annually. Surprising, many of these falls occur in nursing home facilities-facilities where the elderly should be monitored and carefully watched.

Woman claims doctors gave her negligent care

As we have discussed before on this blog, it is very important for doctors to provide their patients with quality care. This includes making sure to properly monitor a patient's condition and properly treat him or her. If doctors negligently fail to do these things, it can have severe consequences for patients. It can even result in a patient suffering injuries such as brain damage.

Man accuses doctor of failing to detect medical condition

Proper detection and diagnosis of a medical condition a patient suffers from can be extremely important. It can help make sure that a patient receives proper treatment in a timely manner and can thus help prevent conditions or injuries from leading to further health problems for patients. Thus, it is very important for doctors to not act negligently when they see and diagnose patients.

Man claims surgical coils left inside him

It is extremely important for hospitals to provide surgical patients with quality care. Particularly, it is important for hospitals to do everything they reasonably can to ensure that tools and materials used during a surgery are not unintentionally left inside of a patient. If hospitals negligently fail to do this, they could be exposing their patients to infections, pain and the possibility of having to undergo additional surgeries to remove left behind objects. No patient should have to be exposed to additional health risks because of hospital negligence.

Man claims doctor acted negligently in regards to cancerous mass

It is very important for medical professionals to exercise appropriate care when providing a patient with care in connection to cancer. If a doctor acts negligently when giving such care, the consequences for patients can be severe. No cancer patient should have to be subjected to this type of negligence. Fighting cancer is a scary enough process without also having to deal with the effects of doctor negligence.
