Common medical mistakes that lead to medical malpractice

Doctors and health care personnel belong to a group of professionals you should be able to trust implicitly with your life. You go to them for medical advice, treatments and surgical procedures to keep you healthy. But with the number of medical malpractice claims rising each day in Kew Gardens, you may find your faith in medicine dwindling. 

Take some time to learn about the common medical mistakes that can occur so you can take actions to prevent them. 

Medication mistakes 

Many medication errors that occur are preventable. Doctors, nurses and even pharmacists sometimes order the wrong medications, administer them incorrectly to patients and neglect to provide proper education to reduce the risk of complications that often occur from adverse reactions. Ask your medical providers the reasons they are prescribing your medications and other questions so you can ensure you are getting the right medicines and dosages for your situation. You should also inform your doctors about all medications you currently take and their dosages to prevent complications. 

Surgical errors 

If you ever have pain after surgery, you may assume that it is a normal side effect of your procedure. You should keep in mind that surgeons make mistakes too. They may not keep proper inventory of all surgical instruments they used for your procedure and may accidentally leave some inside of you. To prevent unnecessary pain, stress and further injury, you should ask your doctors if there are surgical tools inside of your body. Be persistent and, if necessary, ask for X-rays as proof. 

Improper hygiene 

When doctors, nurses and other health care professionals do not practice proper hygienic behavior, they increase the risk of infections to patients.

If you or a loved one has suffered harm from the negligence of a medical professional, it's important to speak with a qualified medical malpractice attorney who can inform you of your rights and provide you with informed options for moving forward.
