Doctor's mistake could entitle mother to compensation: Part 2

As discussed in the previous post, a court in Pennsylvania recently ruled that a mother could sue the doctor who delivered her baby for causing emotional distress even though he didn't cause harm through physical negligence. The mother was shocked when the baby who her doctor had informed her during checkups was perfectly healthy was born with a number of severe deformities.

Doctor's mistake could entitle mother to compensation: Part 1

Ask any expecting mother in Ohio whether they want a boy or a girl baby, and most will probably say they just want a healthy baby. Most expecting mothers go through a lot of effort to make sure that the chances are as good as possible for that to happen. Doctors also play an important role during a pregnancy, as expecting mothers rely on them to provide appropriate health care and give them sound advice about how to best care for their babies both before and after they are born.

A new study recently published in Pediatrics said that babies born to women who develop a fever after being administered an epidural during labor have a greater risk of suffering birth injuries. These issues with the baby's health at birth include having poor muscle tone, low Apgar scores, seizures and difficulty breathing.

What are hospitals doing to improve patient safety?: Part 3

As discussed in the previous post, far too many preventable medical errors continue to occur every day in hospitals across the country, causing great and unnecessary harm to patients. One problem is that the hierarchical culture of hospitals creates an environment where the doctor is the leader and overconfident that he or she won't make mistakes, rather than having a collaborative environment where anyone could look for and point out a potential medical error.

What are hospitals doing to improve patient safety?: Part 1

More than ten years ago the Institute of Medicine estimated that 100,000 people die in hospitals due to preventable errors every year in the U.S. According to Kaiser Health News, the situation in the country is now worse. In 2010, a government report said that 15,000 Medicare patients were dying every month due to preventable errors. In this way, medical mistakes are one of the leading causes of death in the U.S.
