Medical malpractice causes unexpected death of healthy twin

In 2010 a Florida abortion provider committed an egregious act of medical malpractice. The male doctor was treating a patient pregnant with twins, one of whom had Down syndrome. The mother made the difficult decision to abort the baby with Down syndrome, but the procedure ended up killing the other baby. After losing his medical license, based on his medical malpractice in this case, as well as other instances of "shoddy" work, the man was hospitalized in a local mental health facility after the threatened to commit suicide.

Failure to appropriately supervise a patient leads to suicide

Often the injuries and deaths that occur when patients are under the care of medical personnel are entirely preventable. Such was the case when a patient bolted from security personnel and threw himself off a parking lot structure at the Jackson Memorial Hospital. The conclusion that the incident could have been prevented came after a state investigation into the unexpected death that occurred in Florida.
