Medical Malpractice Archives

Radiology errors could cost you serious health consequences

When you suffer from an injury or illness, you rely on the medical personnel attending to your care to determine what is wrong and how to treat it. Doctors and surgeons often rely on radiological tests to provide you with an accurate diagnosis.

Negligence can cause this life-threatening illness

When you enter a Texas hospital to undergo surgery, you know you are at risk. You also assume that the medical care providers who will be tending to your needs will keep your best interests at heart and conduct themselves according to the highest level of accepted standards. You also understand that during recovery, you remain at risk for infection, especially during the first 40 hours post-op.

Post-sepsis syndrome: Surviving sepsis may only be the first step

You may not even remember much about your stay in the intensive care unit. You may have woken up in a normal hospital room to find that your stay in the ICU gave you a life-threatening case of sepsis. Doctors may have told you that they treated you for this severe and potentially terminal infection and the danger has passed.

Sepsis is a serious risk in Texas hospitals

Like many people, you were probably nervous before your surgery. Whether it is a routine procedure or a life-saving operation, surgery is often frightening and its recovery painful. Your doctor may have reviewed the risks and explained what to expect in the days and weeks of your recovery. However, you weren't prepared for what happened.

Hospitals are full of potentially deadly infections

Few people like to go to the hospital, and if you've ever been to a hospital either visiting or as a patient, you might have feared that you could get sick just from being there. The sad reality is that you could contract a bacterial or viral infection in a hospital setting, which is supposed to guard against illness. The source of such infections could come from exposure to a patient, unsanitary conditions or unsterile equipment.

Death can result from a failure to timely diagnose sepsis

When you entrust the life of your loved one to a surgeon, you expect him or her to receive the best care possible. A successful surgical procedure gives you a sense of relief -- until your loved one's condition takes a turn for the worse.

What should I do in the event of medical malpractice?

Doctors and other health care professionals are expected to exercise a reasonable degree of care when taking care of patients. However, this does not always happen, thus leading to serious injuries in Texas. In such cases, the party deemed at fault may be held liable through the civil court system in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

No one should suffer from Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

If someone made you take vitamins and made sure you ate nutritious food as a child, you should thank that person. As it turns out, your brain needs certain vitamins in order to work properly. For example, without appropriate levels of vitamin B-1, or thiamine, you risk significant loss of brain function.

Survey Shows Disturbing Number of Doctors Willing to Hide Harmful Medical Errors

If a doctor makes a mistake and it harms you, then you expect the doctor to admit that an error happened. In any case, you don't expect your doctor to hide a clinical mistake that causes harm.
