Surgeon exposes common hospital mistakes

It may be easy to dismiss concerns over the dangers found within hospital walls. But these concerns may be more worrisome when they are raised by a medical professional. This is exactly what Dr. Marty Makary has done by speaking out about the hidden dangers in many hospitals. The sad reality is that these issues arise often and can be found in any hospital, including those in Miami.

Doctors' failures lead to medical malpractice

Hospitals are meant to take care of individuals from the moment they enter the institution until the moment they leave. This means those who are sick are treated immediately and care does not end the moment a patient is sewn up after surgery. Unfortunately, doctors all too often fail to give their patients the care they deserve. When this hospital negligence occurs, irreparable harm and death can result. A recent lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania shows how serious medical malpractice can be, and why Miami residents should be aware.

Nursing home neglect case: patient left in excessive heat, dies

As Miami residents know, the weather in southern Florida is usually beautiful. Sometimes though, the elements can be more than annoying. They can be downright dangerous. Extreme heat, severe storms and chilly nights can all pose threats, especially to our elderly residents. Since the elderly are more sensitive to the weather it is important that those who cannot care for themselves are watched after. When these vulnerable individuals are not properly taken care of, a tragedy, like the one in a nursing home neglect case that happened in another state earlier this year, can occur.

Study shows seniors face risk of bad meds; medical malpractice

Miami residents, like others across the country, take prescribed medications without any qualms. Patients rightly expect that their doctors are competent enough to prescribe needed drugs at the proper strength. Doctors, unfortunately, sometimes fail to live up to these expectations. A recently released study shows just how vulnerable seniors are to medication errors.
