The Negligent Actions of a Medical Professional
The one big question looming around a great many people who fall victim of negligent actions by others is,
“Should I feel guilty suing this medical professional because their mistake was life-changing to me and my family?”
Suppose you or a love one were wrongly injured by someone in the medical profession. They were not paying attention to what they were doing. That person performed a negligent action that greatly affected you and cost you much money, unnecessary pain, and suffering due to your injuries.
“Why should you feel guilty about bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit against that person or company?
If you performed a negligent act, and your actions caused injury to that person, do not you think that person would sue you?
You bet they would without question.
Life is going right, and suddenly, you stand to possibly lose everything due to your injuries brought about by some person’s neglect. This negligent action could have a chain reaction for days, weeks, and months to come.
Medical Errors on the Increase
John Hopkins Hospital and other institutions did an extensive survey in 2019, and their findings were staggering. Across the United States, over 250,000 to 400,00 people die every year due to medical mistakes, making medical error deaths the third leading cause of deaths in America.
It is no wonder that advocates for these patients are pushing for enhanced patient safety.
The medical field is wide and varied with an endless list of areas for medical malpractice to occur, such as the following few mentioned.
- Intensive care
- Family practice
- Specialty doctors
- Nurse Technicians
- Hospital Laboratories
- Therapy (Physical, Occupation, Speech, Respiratory)
- Labor and Delivery
- Nursing Homes
- Rehabilitation Centers
- Walk-in Clinics
- Eye Care Clinics
- Dental Clinics
There are areas of great concern in each of these above areas. Listed below are only a few examples.
- Right surgery wrong patient
- Right patient wrong surgery
- Wrong medication to the right patient
- Right medication wrong dose
- Right patient wrong procedure
- Right procedure wrong patient
- Incorrect diagnosis of a patient leading to unnecessary medical treatment, medicine, and procedures
- Allergic reactions to a medication listed as an allergy and given
- Medication incompatibilities
- Blood incompatibilities
The results of the above include a few of the following.
- Wrongful Death
- Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
There is no excuse for even one mistake to happen to an unexpected victim.
- These medical professionals were not paying attention to detail.
- These professionals did not double and triple-check their actions.
- The professional may have been in a hurry.
- The professional was not trained or educated to perform the procedure.
The laws, rules, and regulations presiding over medical personnel are clear and concise. Medical professionals learn all the precautions to take to avoid medical mistakes when they are in school. However, these professionals can become lax in their actions related to patients’ well-being entrusted in their care. This carelessness on the side of a medical professional means that someone must pay for the actions of others who cause injury to the unsuspecting patient, and it is always the patient who suffers.
Birth Injuries Account for Too Many Errors
Birth injuries frequently happen during the labor and delivery process, and there are too many different types of birth injuries to list. Some injuries are not brought to light until the child is a few years old.
If the doctor is in a hurry for the baby to be delivered, they may rush the process. The doctor’s rush to get the baby delivered can cause brain or spinal cord injuries. These injuries can be short-term or can be with the child for the rest of their lives. The question remains,
“Why shouldn’t the doctor pay for this medical malpractice mistake?”
“Why should it be just the child and parents who pay for this error in judgment?”
The baby and the parents were victims of a hurried attempt at delivery.
