What To Do After A Medical Mistake
Miscommunication between doctors or between nurses and doctors is a common area of medical care where mistakes occur. In today’s hospitals and medical clinics, expert caregivers come in and out in rapid succession and often do not actually see each other. They typically rely on information in medical charts to understand a patient’s overall history and condition.
In such a climate of medical care, it sometimes happens that one doctor orders a test but the test results are not available before the next caregiver arrives at the bedside. An incorrect diagnosis can occur when key facts are not known during an examination.
Have you suffered because of an anesthesia error or did your child develop cerebral palsy or a brain injury because of a preventable birth injury or pregnancy complication?
Untreated blood clots, undetected painkilling errors and undiagnosed symptom patterns can be problematic and lead to serious harm to patients. Allergic reactions to medications should be duly noted before a patient is given the same medication again or prescribed a medication at all.
Symptoms pointing to the possibility of an infection or other nursing or hospital errors after surgery should be thoroughly evaluated before dismissing a patient. When these things do not occur and a patient suffers serious harm, there may be reason to investigate the possibility of physician negligence or staff mistakes.
