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.

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.

There's a fine line between right and wrong use of forceps

You have spent your pregnancy nurturing the new life inside of you while patiently, or impatiently, awaiting the arrival of your newborn. You have done what you can to prepare for the big day, but when it comes, the unexpected occurs, and the delivery does not go as you hoped or planned.

Has a surgical error left you suffering?

Your car has seatbelts to improve the chances that you will survive an accident. However, if you are in a hurry and don't take the time to buckle up, those restraints do no good. In the same way, your hospital likely has protocol for minimizing the risk of mistakes during surgery. If your surgical team doesn't take the time to follow the protocol, what good is it?

New tech can prevent medication errors, but not all hospitals use it

During a hospitalization, you may receive numerous medications for whatever injury or illness you suffer. Since you can't possibly monitor everything the doctors and nurses do, you must rely on them to take the time and care needed to ensure that you don't suffer any serious adverse drug events (ADEs).

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.

Pursuing justice after medical negligence causes birth injury

The birth of a child is one of the most joyous occasions a person may ever experience. Parents grow extremely fond of their child even before birth, and would never want to see a single hair on his or her head come to harm. However, the risk of serious birth injuries is real, especially when doctors and nurses fail to provide appropriate care.

Medical negligence can lead to dangerous infections at site of surgery

Every day hundreds of people undergo surgery in medical facilities across Texas. These procedures can range from the complex, such as with heart surgery, to relatively minor procedures, such as an incision and drainage of a wound. In any case, there is a level of risk involved, and negligence on the part of medical professionals can lead to surgical site infections.

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.

General anesthesia can be risky business in childbirth

There's a reason why obstetricians tend to use general anesthesia only when it's necessary. Even though its use remains safe for most people, it does come with risks, especially for a woman about to give birth. Considering the fact that one of the only reasons that you would receive general anesthesia is because you require a C-section, you might not spend much time thinking about how it will occur, but instead think only of the safety of your unborn child.
