Jury finds two Florida doctors liable for surgery mistake

The mere thought of surgery causes many to cringe. Several think of the mistakes that can happen when a surgeon operates on the wrong body part, makes a wrong incision, or leaves a foreign object inside the patient. While these events do happen, and much more often than they should, even the seemingly slightest mistakes can have devastating consequences.

Wrong or missed diagnosis carries serious consequences

The treatment a patient receives is dependent upon a doctor's diagnosis. An accurate diagnosis often leads to quick and efficient treatment that may leave a patient completely healed of her condition. If, on the other hand, a doctor gives a missed diagnosis the results can have dire consequences. Serious injuries and death caused by medical malpractice like this can ruin lives and families.

Nursing home found liable for resident's death

Many tasks carried out at nursing homes are routine and can be performed without much thought. Nursing home employees should, however, be attentive at all times and ensure their work is carried out appropriately. Any lapse in their duty of care to their residents can lead to serious injury or death. As a recently decided nursing home neglect lawsuit shows, mistakes made carrying out seemingly minor tasks can be devastating.

Medical malpractice suit filed after wrong-site operation

The mere thought of surgery is enough to make some queasy. The fact that a patient is cut open and physiologically changed puts a lot of stress on the patient and a great deal of responsibility on the surgeon. Yet, years of training, a competent medical staff, and safety protocols typically prevent mistakes from happening. But accidents do happen. When a surgical error occurs, the results can be devastating. Miami residents should take note of one recent incident.

Medication left out, mentally ill nursing home resident overdoses

Nursing homes have a lot of responsibilities. These institutions must make sure residents get proper medication, adequate nutrition and appropriate supervision. Any lapse in these duties can lead to serious injuries or death. Such nursing home neglect is tragic, especially because it is completely preventable. A recent incident at a nursing home should leave Miami residents unsettled.
