When you are in need of serious medical attention, you have tremendous faith in the doctors that are treating you. Your doctors and nurses all have very specialized training meant to take care of and cure patients to the best of their ability. We see this in hospitals and clinics across the country each day. However, these professionals are also human– they get tired, have hands slip, and forget things just like the rest of us.
When being treated and especially under the knife, such small errors could create tremendous complications. A missed or wrong diagnosis could lead to serious illness or death. An instrument left in the body after a procedure could result in severe infection. There are many facets to the human body that can be damaged due to such an action.
These types of accidents cause hundreds of thousands of deaths and injuries a year. There are many different types of such errors, but there are often similar threads between many of them. These can include:
- Error in diagnosis
- Failure to spot critical ailment
- Finding diagnosis too late
- Mistaken prescription or dosage
- Poor prenatal or natal care
- Surgical accidents
