Ohio VA facility the center of malpractice claims

The kinds of hospital mistakes that lead to patient injury often defy reason. The Dayton VA Medical Center has been at the center of a number of allegations that eventually led to a $940,000 settlement. What has been asserted is that a dentist at the Ohio facility implemented improper hygiene procedures that have possibly led to 22 medical malpractice claims. Many of these came about after infection was reported among a number of patients.

Cerebral palsy and medical malpractice

Even legislators from other states than Kentucky or Ohio recognize just how devastating birth injuries resulting from medical malpractice can be. The Florida House of Representatives for example approved a $31 million claims bill to provide for the care of a 14-year old boy that was born with severe cerebral palsy due to the medical malpractice of the hospital that delivered him.

Failure to provide mentally ill patient hospital care

The mentally ill often do not get the care that they need, and the severity of their illness is often misdiagnosed. A 30-year old man from Ohio who had been hospitalized a number of times for schizophrenia nevertheless was able to get behind the wheel of a car 18 days after he had attempted suicide. The young man then slammed his car head on into another vehicle killing him and an individual riding in the other vehicle.
