Surgical errors can cause severe nerve damage

There can be a lot of stress associated with going in for surgery. Whether it is the procedure itself, the recovery, or the mere anticipation of the event, almost all Floridians find themselves concerned at one point or another when facing an operation. These fears are natural, but many are alleviated after a successful surgery. However, not all medical procedures are carried out in a safe fashion. Instead, negligent doctors and nurses can make a mistake that leaves a patient with serious complications.

We diligently and competently represent medication error victims

Two weeks ago we discussed some measures taken by the FDA to try to curtail the instances of medication errors in hospitals and pharmacies. Though name assessment, in all its forms, is certainly beneficial to the public, the FDA's processes cannot prevent every mishap. Negligent medical professionals can still misinterpret a prescription, prescribe the wrong medication, administer the wrong dosage, or fail to consult a patient's allergies. When this happens, you can be left with extensive harm.

How common are bedsores and how can they affect my loved one?

If you have, or about to, place a loved one in a nursing home, then you know the fear that can be associated with choosing the right residence. Though we hope that all of these institutions and their employees diligently work to keep their residents safe, this is not always the case. Tragically, many of the harmful instances that befall our loved ones are completely preventable and, if left untreated, could be fatal.

How the FDA tries to curb medication errors

Nearly every Floridian takes medication at one time or another in his or her life. Without thought, we swallow pills, down medicated liquids, and submit to injections. We put our trust in our doctors and nurses, oftentimes without even considering if what they are administering or prescribing is what we really need. Medication errors, though, are a reality, and many individuals are seriously harmed or even killed as a result. So, what is being done to curtail these tragic incidences?
