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.

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.
