Florida hospital negligence: what is shoulder dystocia?

Generally speaking, there are two segments of the Florida population that are especially vulnerable: the elderly and the young. Therefore, when it comes to Florida medical care, it is extremely important that doctors and nurses exercise the appropriate level of care when treating these individuals. Though some Floridians may suffer harm that is not caused by anyone, there are, unfortunately, instances where medical professional error causes significant, sometimes, irreparable harm.

Failure to diagnose: looking for Florida cancer

Nobody likes to think about cancer, and the reality that they could someday come face-to-face with it. Yet, there are steps that Floridians can take to help beat and even prevent cancer. Refraining from smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and exercising are all great ways to reduce the risk. However, even those who are proactive in their health may find themselves in a serious medical situation after their doctor's failure to diagnose cancer.

Inaccurate weight estimates can lead to medication errors

Medication can play a vital role in an individual's health plan. While many Floridians take their medication without much thought, the reality of the matter is that there must be some precise calculations made in order to ensure that a medication is effective and safe when taken. Any slipup with regards to these calculations can lead to devastating consequences for a patient, potentially causing him or her serious injuries or death.

Those hurt by surgical errors can find legal help

Just last week on the blog, we discussed an instance of anesthesia error and how it left a military veteran in a vegetative state. Though we like to think that surgical errors like these are extremely rare, the truth of the matter is disheartening. The truth is that it only takes one seemingly minor mistake, or an overworked medical professional, or someone's lack of sleep to cause a tragic incident. Those unfortunate individual who are victimized by errant doctors and nurses then have to try to deal with the aftermath of the error.
