Even technology cannot fully prevent medication errors

The last several decades have seen a revolution in medication. Once incurable diseases are now eliminated by vaccinations, and other conditions and their symptoms can be beaten back, allowing individuals to live longer, healthier and happier lives. However, just as it is with other areas of healthcare, mistakes can be made in medication dosage or administration. These instances are far more common than we tend to think, and the result of such an error can be nothing short of tragic.

Steps to consider prior to filing a medical malpractice claim

Medical professionals are far from perfect. They often make mistakes, leading to serious injuries, decreased chances of survival and even death. Sometimes, these individuals even intentionally inflict harm on patients. Regardless of how it happens, victims of medical malpractice can suffer significantly. They might face harsh financial losses and their physical and emotional well-being can be jeopardized. Though a sense of hopelessness can loom over these victims, they should take comfort in knowing that they may be able to find compensation, justice and closure via a hospital negligence lawsuit.

Ford Dean & Rotundo stands up to negligent nursing homes

Nursing homes play an important role in our society. They provide vital care to our elderly loved ones, oftentimes when family members are unable to provide that care themselves. Though these homes should provide peace of mind and safe, healthy, caring environments, all too often they do not. Mistakes, carelessness and intentional acts and omissions can leave a nursing home resident at risk of harm that could lead to long-term consequences and, potentially, death.

Examining nursing home neglect damages

Victims of nursing home neglect and nursing home abuse can experience a wide array of emotions. They may be angered, confused, depressed and stressed about their future. Many of these emotions arise out of the physical and emotional pain and suffering caused to the victim, as well as the realities of having to find a way to pay for unexpected and undeserved medical expenses. Perhaps one of the best ways to ease the burden of these aftereffects is to file a nursing home neglect lawsuit, seeking compensation for damages caused.
