The importance of correct mild TBI diagnosis in Connecticut

While it is important to correctly diagnose any brain trauma, it is also important not to overdiagnose mild traumatic brain injuries. First, there is a stigma that goes along with the phrase brain damage that may not necessarily mean that a patient is permanently disabled. Second, diagnosing someone with a second or third brain injury could cause that person to evaluate his or her career choice even if the injury won't cause long-lasting or permanent damage.

Hearing loss linked to antibiotic

As some Connecticut doctors may know, the results of a medical journal study was released toward the end of July about the use of certain antibiotics and resultant hearing loss. Aminoglycoside antibiotics, used to treat bacterial infections, was already known to cause hearing loss because this medication adversely affects inner ear cells used to detect motion and sound.

Importance of post-surgical communications

On average, about 85,000 civil suits for medical malpractice are filed around the country every year. This represents only a tiny fraction of the approximately 1 million medical injuries that occur on an annual basis. Health care facilities in Connecticut and around the nation are cognizant of this, and there are attempts that are being made to reduce these numbers.

Recorded surgeries may aid medical malpractice cases

Surgical teams in Connecticut and throughout the United States may soon find that the so-called "surgical black box," a device developed at the University of Toronto, could be installed in their operating rooms, tracking their movements and recording any errors. While the purpose of the box is to assist in identifying the factors that lead to poor surgical outcomes, many are already considering the possibility of the boxes being used as evidence in lawsuits based upon surgical mistakes.
