Failure of hospital emergency room doctors to diagnosis a heart attack, stroke, appendicitis, or aneurysm kills patients every day. Medical Malpractice is very serious but often are caused by what might seem like minor procedures such as nurse gives a patient the wrong medicine, or fails to consider how multiple drugs interact in a patient, it can severely compromise the patient’s recovery, even their life. When a doctor, or a surgeon, or a hospital, acts carelessly, or fails to act in time, it can result in serious injury and/or permanent disability and death. In fact, almost all incidences of medical malpractice are complicated matters that involve equally complex principles of science and engineering. Errors surgeons and anesthesiologists make in the operating room and post- operative negligence in hospital and clinical settings also cause harm to patients -- harm that leads to medical malpractice suits against the doctor, or institution responsible for your pain and suffering.
