Lawsuit alleges man died due to negligence regarding dialysis

There are a wide variety of different types of medical treatments. Regardless of type, it is very important for medical professionals and medical companies here in Connecticut to act properly when giving treatments to patients. This includes making sure to properly monitor a patient when giving them a treatment.

Settlement reached in cesarean section case

Delivery-related negligence can take many different forms. One such form is failure by a doctor to perform a cesarean section in a timely manner. Negligence related to a cesarean section can lead to an infant suffering significant birth injuries, such as brain injuries. No infant here in Connecticut should have to face life-altering injuries because of the actions of a doctor.

Shocking statistics about the medical field and mistakes

The medical field is already scary enough with all of the unknown elements that many patients face. When given a serious diagnosis that requires immediate attention, the patient's imagination can run wild. What if the doctor makes a mistake? What if the diagnosis is incorrect? What if they prescribe the wrong medication? What if a surgeon's hand slips and catastrophic results occur? It's unfortunate, but the medical field is a complicated, uncomfortable and scary place for most people.

Doctors accused of failing to diagnose woman's lung cancer

There are many different tools medical professionals have available to them that can help them detect lung cancer and its symptoms. One such tool is chest imaging. One hopes that all medical professionals here in Connecticut make sure to act properly when reading the chest imaging of patients.

Verdict reached in medication overdose case in Connecticut

It is incredibly important for hospitals and doctors here in Connecticut to act properly when it comes to the dosage of medications given to patients. It can be very harmful when a medication isn't given in the right dose. Too low of a dose may cause a medication to not have the intended effect and to not work as a treatment. Meanwhile, too high of a dose can result in a patient suffering an overdose. Patients can suffer significant injuries from a medication overdose. One hopes that doctors and hospitals are held accountable when they cause patients harm by acting negligently in relation to the dosage of a medication.

Doctors accused of failing to detect stent movement

Occasionally, a person here in Connecticut will have a medical device installed in them. Unfortunately, sometimes, these devices do something that they are not supposed to, such as move from their intended location. This can lead to patients suffering serious injuries, particularly if it goes undetected and unaddressed for an extended period of time. Thus, it is very important for doctors and hospitals to act in a proper manner in relation to the detection of unintended actions or movements of implanted medical devices.
