3 tips for dealing with a medical error that causes harm

Medical errors can impact a patient and the patient's entire family. When you are the person who suffered harm, dealing with the fallout can be difficult. You might not be able to interact with your children like you need to. Your relationship with your spouse might suffer.

A patient's worst nightmare: Waking up under the knife

Imagine going in to the hospital for a simple procedure. You have your pre-op with the surgeon, the anesthesiologist then comes in to put you under, and you fall blissfully unconscious before they even wheel you into the operating room. Not only did the staff administer anesthesia, but they also gave you a paralytic to keep your muscles from twitching during the surgery.

Seeing a salesperson in the OR?

If someone is undergoing surgery in an operating room, there's a chance that they or one of their loved ones will see an extra person there, sometimes coaching the doctors. They aren't scrubbed in, but are often present while medical devices like new hips or knees and installing cardiac defibrillators or spine surgeries occur.

Awareness for wrongful birth lawsuits

Coping with a wrongful birth claim is difficult and comes with many challenges. Throughout a pregnancy the expectant mother has the right to test the fetus for certain medical conditions and impending birth defects. If a doctor runs these tests and determines there is a complication, parents then should have the right to decide if they want to continue with the pregnancy.

Family receives $30 million settlement for medical malpractice

A 6-year-old boy's family has agreed to a $30 million medical negligence settlement. The medical malpractice lawsuit was against the doctor who performed multiple experimental surgeries on a young boy. In fact, the doctor performed a total of 25 surgeries on the boy and the last surgery, which was performed in 2011, caused the boy to suffer irreversible brain damage. Furthermore, he now suffers from cerebral palsy as a result of the botched surgery.

Social media is a dangerous thing in an operating room

As a patient, you want your doctor—and the support staff—to pay very close attention to everything they're doing while you're in surgery. This can limit mistakes and help you get through without any complications. This is more than a desire on your part; it's an expected level of care.

Are all birth injuries the result of doctors' errors?

Parents must realize that physical and mental problems following a birth can happen naturally and they can happen as the direct result of medical malpractice and/or doctors' errors. When they happen naturally, they are unavoidable and an unfortunate but normal part of life. On the other hand, when they happen due to doctors' errors, they are preventable and never should have occurred.

Medical malpractice occurs more frequently than patients realize

It is probably safe to say that most people who go to a doctor do not realize that the chances of being treated by someone who has been sued for committing doctor error or some other medical professional negligence is extremely high. One survey asked doctors about their experiences with medical malpractice lawsuits, and 80 percent of them acknowledged being sued for negligence at some point in their careers.

Emergency room doctors: medically unnecessary tests common

It is easy to sympathize with doctors who work in emergency rooms. They frequently find themselves having to make diagnosis and treatment decisions on patients who may have serious or life-threatening injuries, illnesses or other conditions with little time to analyze symptoms or to make a thorough analysis of what those symptoms really mean; and the consequences for making an incorrect diagnosis, or delaying treatment too long, or providing the wrong kind of treatment can be disastrous for everyone involved.

Don’t lose your right to sue for medical professional negligence

Confusing the Connecticut statute of limitations with the statute of repose is one of those mistakes in life that could cost you dearly if you have been injured by a doctor error or other medical professional negligence. Both statutes set time limits for filing a claim for compensation, and failing to comply with them could result in the dismissal of your medical malpractice lawsuit.
