Study Shows Hospital Personnel, Culture, Communication Key to Good Patient Care

High tech equipment, state of the art facilities and renowned surgeons are all important factors that make a hospital great. However, a recent study suggests that a hospital's culture may be the real factor that determines one hospital's superiority over another.

Walgreens makes a serious medication error

A Walgreens pharmacist recently made a serious medication error. The pharmacist mistakenly gave the wrong medication to a mother for her two-year-old. The mix-up occurred when the mother filled a prescription for Motrin flu medication for her sick child at a Walgreens pharmacy. The pharmacy bag was labeled with her son's personal information on it, and directions for the use of the Motrin.

Teenage dental patient dies after sedation

Dental patients trust that their dentists are knowledgeable and experienced in the practice of their profession. Sometimes, dental patients are seriously injured when under the care of their dentist. There can be many reasons that might cause a serious injury while undergoing a dental procedure, including medical malpractice.

Hospital accused of failing to inform patient of test results

When individuals go to a hospital to receive care, they will sometimes undergo medical tests. These tests will sometimes produce results which indicate potential medical problems. Thus, medical tests can have real benefits to patients, as spotting medical problems early can allow actions to be taken to address these problems before they can cause major long-term damage. However, these benefits of testing can be negated if doctors negligently fail to inform patients of relevant test results.

Lawsuit alleges man's death caused by ER negligence

When an individual goes to a hospital emergency room, they expect that the hospital and its doctors will provide them with quality care. Because individuals who come to an emergency room can be suffering from serious injuries or conditions, it can be extremely important for them to receive such care. Thus, it can be very harmful when hospitals and doctors act negligently towards emergency room patients.

Couple claims IV solution error led to baby's death

When an error is made regarding a medication or IV solution that is given to an infant, it can have major consequences. In some circumstances, this type of error can even lead to an infant's death. Thus, it is extremely important for hospitals and their staff to do everything they reasonably can to avoid this kind of medication error.

Doctor sued in connection to death of emergency room patient

Emergency room patients sometimes suffer from injuries or conditions that could cause a great deal of harm if they are not treated in a prompt and correct fashion. Because of this, negligent conduct by emergency room doctors can have major negative repercussions for patients.

Man claims surgical tubing left inside him

Surgeries can be scary things for patients, as there are always risks which go along with these types of invasive procedures. Thus, it is important for medical professionals who are involved in surgeries to not commit negligent actions during these procedures which would unnecessarily expose patients to additional risks or harms.
