Common anesthesia errors include failure to review medical records prior to administering anesthesia, failure to identify allergies and drug interactions, intubation errors, inadequate monitoring of patients under anesthesia, and administering the wrong anesthetic. These and other mistakes can lead to a host of dangerous, potentially-fatal complications.
Medical malpractice before, during, and after delivery can lead to tragic consequences. Many birth injury victims suffer from life-changing disabilities, and their families often face seemingly-insurmountable expenses in order to provide for their needs.
Cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons can perform life-saving treatment and procedures. However, they can also make grave mistakes. Diagnostic errors, treatment errors, and errors during surgery can all lead to exorbitant medical bills and other losses from life-changing medical complications.
Diagnostic errors are widely recognized as the single most prevalent form of medical malpractice in hospitals and emergency rooms. Cancer, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, and stroke are among the diseases and medical conditions that are most commonly misdiagnosed.
In the hectic world of hospitals and emergency rooms, you would like to think that administrators, doctors, and nurses have it all figured out. Unfortunately, experience tells us that they do not. Failure to follow proper procedures, inadequate staffing, recordkeeping mistakes, misdiagnoses, and prescription errors are among the many errors that lead to avoidable illnesses and injuries in hospitals and emergency rooms in Kentucky.
Common forms of malpractice in pediatric care include failure to diagnose appendicitis, meningitis, pneumonia, leukemia, and other diseases. Medication errors and failures to make referrals often lead to unnecessary illnesses, inadequate treatment, and worsening conditions as well.
