Nursing staff failure leads to baby's death

The birth of a child is an exciting, happy time. Doctors and nurses typically provide adequate care that ensures the mother and baby's safety. Sadly, though, lapses in judgment and avoidable accidents happen that can cause serious injury and death. Hospital negligence can leave Miami families devastated, facing a lifetime of physical and emotional pain. A recent lawsuit filed in southern Florida illustrates how hospital negligence can be tragic.

Nursing home neglect leaves man with septic shock

The purpose of a nursing home is to provide quality care to elderly residents who cannot care for themselves. When families place their loved ones in these institutions, they assume their loved one will be completely safe. Sadly, this assumption is sometimes proven wrong. Nursing home neglect is all too common throughout the country and Florida, with instances also popping up in Miami. Bedsores, rapid weight loss, and a nursing home fall can all be signs of such neglect.

Wrong dosage of blood thinners given too often, poses risks

Almost everyone relies on medication at some point in their life. Patients, with confidence in their doctors' abilities, generally accept prescribed medication without much thought. Miami residents should know however, that medication errors are more common than they may realize. When these errors occur, medical malpractice may result, resulting in serious injury or death.

Nursing home fall leads to broken vertebra and death

When Miami residents take their elderly relatives to a nursing home they expect those loved ones to receive the care they need and deserve. This care does not only mean that nursing home residents receive proper medication and nutrition, but also that they receive proper supervision as well. A failure in any of these areas can constitute nursing home neglect and leave a resident with serious injuries, or it can sometimes even be fatal. These incidences can happen anywhere at any time, so it is important that Miami residents are informed of these cases so they can detect when nursing home neglect has taken place.
