Governor's words mask potential for worsened conditions

Texas residents want the best medical care available. All people in need of medical care, whether for an everyday illness or something more severe and complicated, deserve to receive the most thorough and comprehensive treatments. Recently the Governor of Texas touted the success of his tort reform legislation in relation to healthcare in the state, although this success may be exaggerated.

Texas falls behind in many health care quality statistics

Texas residents believe that they should have the best medical care possible if they find themselves needing it. Good quality physicians, affordable medical costs, access to medical malpractice lawsuits and quality healthcare is something that all people deserve. A recent article pointed out some of Texas's medical shortcomings and the state's failure to follow acceptable standards.

Failure to diagnose dental infections: a growing problem

Many people in Houston will have a serious dental condition at some point in their life. Teeth are often overlooked in healthcare; dental insurance can be expensive, and many people feel like they should be able to tolerate oral pain. However, when patients do seek dental care for a serious condition, providers need respond with timely and appropriate treatment. The failure to diagnose and treat dental infections can result in hospital stays, severe pain, long-term conditions and even death for some patients.

Should HIV positive medical staff be allowed to perform surgery?

Patients seeking medical attention in Houston for their health conditions typically believe that their doctors are taking whatever steps necessary to keep them safe. Although extremely rare, there have been cases of healthcare workers infecting their patients with HIV. Surgical errors can occur and patients here in Texas and around the world can acquire new diseases that only worsen their conditions.
