Criticism and a second opinion could help your malpractice case

Carelessness is a serious risk in any surgical or medical setting, but what about talking to patients about another provider's carelessness? It's not always a good idea for medical professionals to speak ill of one another, but for a patient looking to make a case, this can be a massive help.

Protecting yourself against a missed pulmonary embolism diagnosis

Pulmonary embolisms are potentially life-endangering conditions. This condition occurs when a blockage forms in one of the arteries spanning into the lungs. In most cases, the blockage is caused by blood clots. Most come from the legs.

What do surgical errors cost?

When surgeons leave items behind inside patients, there is a high risk that patients can get ill or even die. Sponges and surgical tools can't be left behind; doctors have to take steps to avoid this and protect their patients. Sadly, that doesn't always happen.

Prescription errors: The risk to patients

Prescription mistakes can put patients' lives in danger, which is why it's so important for doctors to get their patients' prescriptions right the first time. Even if a doctor gets the prescription right, a pharmacist could make a mistake. For this reason, it's wise for patients to have a full discussion with the medical provider about what the medication is and what to expect.
