Common causes of never events and surgical errors

Every patient who has to have surgery hopes that the surgeon doesn't make any surgical errors during the procedure. Unfortunately, surgeons are humans, and they will make mistakes at some point. One thing that patients have to decide is whether they believe the issue is an error or mistake.

Prescription errors shouldn't ever happen

Medication errors can almost always be prevented. One error that might occur is a patient receiving the full strength of a drug that must first be diluted. Sometimes, the issue is that the patients don't get the drugs for which they are being billed.

Brain injuries can lead to learning disabilities in children

Parents want their children to succeed in school so that they can thrive in life. Unfortunately, some children don't have this option because they suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) at the hands of another person. This might occur due to a car wreck, a near-drowning, medical error or a host of other types of incidents. In all of these cases, there is a chance that the child will have lingering learning disabilities.

Sepsis can leave its mark on your life long after it's gone

Whether you underwent a surgical procedure, suffered a cut or suffered an internal infection, you expect the medical staff at the hospital to properly monitor you in order to make sure that you don't contract an infection or that an existing one does not get worse. Sadly, many people at hospitals here in New Mexico and elsewhere end up with a serious, and sometimes life-threatening, condition called sepsis, which can happen if an infection is undiagnosed and untreated.

Birth injuries demand legal action against the negligent party

The labor and delivery process isn't easy on the woman or the baby. There are times when one or both of them might suffer an injury. Some injuries are considered part and parcel of the process but others are the result of medical malpractice. You likely don't have to do anything about the former; however, seeking compensation is possible with the latter.
