Man loses his leg due to alleged medical malpractice

Routine is a word often used to described minor surgical procedures, but the truth is that no surgery is routine. There is risk involved with every surgery, no matter how minor the procedure may be. Although modern technology has made health care more efficient and somewhat safer in America, mistakes are still made every single day. Any mistake made during a surgical procedure can mean permanent injuries and even death for patients. Every year, thousands of people in Kentucky and across the country suffer the consequences of medical malpractice.

For parents in Kentucky and across the United States, the birth of a child is a magical and joyful occasion that is cause for celebration.

Medical facilities across Kentucky are well equipped to meet the needs of accident victims. However, when it comes to traumatic injuries, the single most important factor in determining the recovery of the victim is time. Those who suffer these types of injuries must be seen by a doctor as soon as possible or risk death. In another state, a medical malpractice lawsuit was filed by the family of a man who died at a hospital after allegedly waiting hours to see a surgeon.

Medical malpractice: Paralyzed man awarded nearly $3 million

Patients in Kentucky visit emergency rooms of hospitals when they suffer a traumatic injury and are in urgent need of immediate care. Emergency room doctors and nurses must be meticulous and follow the appropriate steps in order to successfully treat patients. Any deviation from this standard of care can severely injure and even kill patients. A paralyzed man in another state recently received a substantial monetary award from a medical malpractice lawsuit he filed after allegedly being subjected to negligent treatment in an emergency room.

Dental patients may also suffer from medical malpractice

Dentists in Kentucky are required to treat their patients appropriately and with an acceptable level of care. Patients who require dental work often undergo complicated procedures, so they place their trust and their lives in the hands of dentists. However, errors or negligence during a dental procedure can leave patients with disfigurement and other substantial injuries. Many people may be unaware that dentists, like physicians and other medical professionals, can be held accountable for medical malpractice

Medical malpractice during surgery can result in death

Although thousands of people undergo surgical procedures every day across the country, there is risk involved with any surgery. In order for a surgical procedure to be successful, surgeons and providers must be meticulous and adhere to guidelines. Any missed step, no matter how minor, can have devastating effects for patients, including death. In Kentucky, medical professionals who deviate from the accepted standard of care can be held accountable through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice: Patient dies soon after being discharged

These days, hospitals and medical facilities in Kentucky and across the country are constantly packed with patients and filled to near capacity. Attempting to treat as many patients as possible can leave doctors and nurses overworked and exhausted. Due to high patient volumes, its not uncommon for providers to push for patients to be discharged, which can lead to medical malpractice.

An incorrect diagnosis is considered medical malpractice

When it comes to successfully treating a medical condition, the first and most important step is a correct diagnosis. A disease cannot be treated if it is not properly diagnosed. Patients in Kentucky trust that their physicians have the wisdom necessary to provide the necessary treatment. In a recent medical malpractice lawsuit from another state, doctors allegedly failed to diagnose a serious condition and the patient suffered the consequences.

Medical malpractice in nursing homes can be deadly

As loved ones age, they can be stripped of their independence and may be unable to safely live by themselves. Long-term care facilities, better known as nursing homes, were created to provide around-the-clock care for those who are unable to live alone. Without question, deciding to place a loved one in a nursing home is a very difficult decision for Kentucky families. Tragically, it is not uncommon for elderly patients to be subjected to medical malpractice in these facilities.

Medical malpractice continues to plague the nation

Thousands of surgical procedures take place every single day in Kentucky and across America. Fortunately, the vast majority of these procedures are successful thanks to skilled surgeons and state-of-the-art medical technology. However, it is common knowledge that there is always a chance for error when humans are involved. Tragically, patients and families directly suffer the consequences of medical malpractice.
