Huge Variation In C-Section Rates At American Hospitals

The Cesarean section is an enormously important tool for delivery room physicians. Under certain circumstances, it becomes crucial to deliver a baby through C-section - and doctors need to know when those circumstances exist.

Investigation: C. Diff Kills 30,000 In U.S. Hospitals Each Year

Clostridium difficile, or C. diff, attacks 500,000 Americans every year, killing an estimated 30,000 hospital patients. Because of the deadly bacteria's ability to quickly kill people, you'd think extreme precautions would be in place to curb its spread. Instead, the presence of C. diff in hospitals and nursing homes has never been greater than now.

Hospital Technician Spreads Hepatitis To Patients

At least 24 medical malpractice lawsuits have been filed after a hospital technician allegedly infected them with the viral disease hepatitis C. The technician, David Kwiatkowski, is a Fentanyl addict who injected himself with the powerful painkiller before reusing the syringes on patients. It's possible that Kwiatkowski, 33, infected as many as 1,100 patients with hepatitis C.

A new medical study is examining the impact of cord blood upon young children with cerebral palsy. The clinical trial involves children with a spastic form of cerebral palsy between the ages of one and six who have preserved their infant cord blood.

Blake Hutchins suffers daily from developmental problems. The 3-year-old's speech and cognitive function lag behind that of normal children, but his mother only recently learned that his impairments are attributed to medical malpractice committed by the hospital.

Catheter punctures infant's heart; he narrowly survives operation

If good intentions carried much worth in the delivery of babies, there wouldn't be many birth injuries occurring. Doctors' hearts were in the right place when they treated a prematurely-born baby for pneumonia, but hospital staff didn't follow best practices and it almost cost the infant his life.

Nursing error results in inadvertent amputation of baby's finger

Veronica Olguin just wished she would awake from her nightmare, but, sadly, she wasn't dreaming. The mother watched in horror as a nurse accidentally cut her 3-month-old's pinky finger off. The severed pinky fell to the floor, blood started gushing and the infant, Selena, began screaming - as did the nurse.

Hospitals can take simple steps to reduce errors: Part 2

As discussed in the previous post, in this age of technology, it is often the simple things hospitals do to prevent errors that save patient lives. Dr. Donald Berwick was appointed by President Obama as head of the Medicare and Medicaid programs, but his appointment runs out at the end of the year.
