Pharmacist facing charges after meningitis outbreak

Connecticut residents may have heard that the New England Compounding Center's co-founder, senior pharmacist and 12 other employees are being accused in court of a litany of criminal actions. These charges stem from a 2012 outbreak of meningitis that was allegedly caused by the company's manufacture of contaminated steroids. Around 750 people became ill due to the incident, and 64 people died, according to reports.

Misdiagnoses still problematic in many hospitals

Connecticut resident might be interested to know that the old problem of misdiagnosis is a standing dilemma that has not disappeared over time. Even though modern technology has improved the medical community's ability to detect cardiovascular disease and detect ectopic pregnancies, the rate of misdiagnosis has not significantly dropped in recent years, according to sources.

Potential defendants in medical malpractice actions

When a Connecticut patient is the victim of medical malpractice, there are many parties that could be named in a lawsuit. Beyond the doctor who may have made an error in treating the patient, the patient may also be able to include the hospital where the error took place as a defendant. It may also be possible to include pharmaceutical companies in a medical malpractice suit as well.
