Patient transfers can sometimes lead to falls and injuries

For some nurses, one of the most difficult part of their job is lifting patients. This can be hard, because some patients are unable to move themselves onto the bed or into a chair. Some patients aren't even able to turn in bed. The nurses must then reposition them and help them move.

Doctor's errors can lead to serious patient injuries

You doctor should always act in your best interests. In order to do this, they must be mentally alert and able to analyze the situation. When doctors are fatigued or not paying attention, they might end up making errors that harm patients. If you are one of the patients harmed by a doctor's errors, you have legal options to seek compensation for the damages and losses that you suffered.

Some surgeries are more dangerous than others

Having surgery comes with a specific set of risks. When a patient is cut open or has to be placed under anesthesia, they face potential risks. The anesthesia could set off an allergic reaction or even cause death to a patient. Cutting the skin can introduce bacteria to the wound, which may lead to an infection.

Medical negligence: Be proactive to prevent it

When you visit a New Mexico doctor's office, you can reasonably expect that the physician and nurses who tend to your needs will act according to the highest level of accepted safety standards and industry protocol. If they don't, you are at great risk for medical injury. Sadly, thousands of lives are lost every year in situations that were easily preventable. Thankfully, many medical patients survive their injuries; however, it is usually not without significant negative impact on their health.

Seek compensation for medication errors that harm you

You count on your doctors to prescribe the correct medications in the proper dosages to treat any medical conditions that you have. The prescription is usually verified by the pharmacist. Between these two individuals, you shouldn't get any incorrect medications. When you are in the hospital, there is also a nurse who reviews medications before you are given them.
