Tonsillectomy causes fatal brain injury for teenager

Kentucky residents may have heard that according to a teenage tonsillectomy patient's mother, her daughter began bleeding from the nose and mouth shortly after awakening from the surgery before going into cardiac arrest. Attending physicians eventually pronounced brain death and announced plans to remove life support not long after. That decision was apparently overruled by parental objection with requests for more time.

Vitamin B12 deficiency may cause neurological symptoms

Kentucky patients may be interested to learn that many doctors and other members of the medical community have largely ignored cobalamin, or vitamin B12, deficiency as a potential diagnosis for certain neurological symptoms. While this may not seem like a big deal, current studies indicate that at least 48 million Americans may suffer from B12 deficiency.

Parents complaint charges doctor and hospital malpractice

Parents in Covington and Kenton, Kentucky, are no different from parents anywhere else who want the best medical care for their children and trust their children's doctors to provide it. Medical mistakes such as a failure to diagnose can occur, but few parents expect doctors to misrepresent a child's medical condition as parents of an infant with a failing heart recently alleged.

Kentucky physicians struggle in discussing incompetent doctors

By some estimates, mistakes by doctors and other medical professionals are the leading cause of death in Kentucky and other parts of the United States. In some cases, the patients do not know that an error has occurred, but one report asserts that the mistake may have been noticed by other doctors. A recent survey conducted by a professor at the University of Washington's school of medicine found that, in 2012, more than half of the doctors who responded saw an error made by another physician. The results of the survey were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
