Medication error may have caused nursing home death

When we place loved ones in a nursing home, friends and family expect that the facility and its staff will provide quality care to the fullest extent. Yet, nursing homes are not immune to accidents, neglect and medical malpractice. Patients may fall victim to preventable slip and falls, unnecessary bed sores and medication errors.

Surgical error causes woman to catch on fire

Miami, Florida, residents should know that surgical errors occur in many different forms. Sometimes surgical instruments are left inside of patients and other times incisions are made in the wrong place. Yet, these are not the boundaries of hospital neglect and medical malpractice during surgery.

Most people assume that after they undergo surgery their health problem will be solved or at least they will be on the road to recovery. It rarely occurs to them that they might wake up after an operation with unbearable pain that is later discovered was caused by a surgical instrument that was left inside their body.

Lack of attention leads to nursing home neglect

Nursing home neglect is unfortunately rampant throughout Florida and the United States. Florida residents, therefore, might want to familiarize themselves with specific situations in which neglect arises so that they can know when their loved ones have been wronged.
