Preventable Medical Errors are Common in NJ Healthcare Facilities in Collingswood, New Jersey

The statistics regarding preventable medical errors in hospitals in the United States are staggering. In fact, medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in this country, behind heart disease and cancer. The Journal of Patient Safety released a study in mid-2014 stating that more than 440,000 people die from preventable medical mistakes made in hospitals every year in the US. The same report revealed tens of thousands more people suffer wrongful deaths every year as a result of preventable errors made in other healthcare facilities.

Common medical mistakes made in Mt. Laurel, Pemberton, Moorestown & Cherry Hill, NJ include:

Doctor Negligence: Physicians take an oath to “do no harm.” If mistakes are made during diagnosis, treatment or follow-up care that causes injury to a patient, it may be considered medical malpractice.

Anesthesia Errors: Mistakes made during procedures involving endotracheal intubation, epidural anesthesia, and local anesthesia may result in brain damage or other injuries including paralysis, stroke, nerve damage, persistent vegetative state, or death.

Surgical Errors: Operating on the wrong body part or even the wrong patient should “never” occur but unfortunately it does with often tragic results. Injuring a nerve during surgery, improper administration of anesthesia or leaving a piece of surgical equipment inside the patient, may all lead to injury or death.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis of Cancer: Failure to diagnosis cancer at the earliest stages leads to delayed treatment and serious complications or even death.

Medication Errors: When a patient is prescribed the wrong medication or a pharmacy makes a medication error, adverse side effects can occur. Additionally, if a patient receives the wrong dosage of medication – too much or not enough –serious injuries can result or even death.

Blood Transfusions: Red blood cell transfusions are commonplace in US hospitals. However, a National Institutes of Health report revealed almost 60 percent of blood transfusions were “inappropriate procedures” not benefitting the patient or even causing complications, infections or mortality.

Birth Injuries: Failure to identify high-risk factors in expectant mothers during prenatal care or identification of a number of birth defects and abnormal fetal conditions including Erb’s palsy and shoulder dystocia. These can result in significant injury to the mother and/or the unborn child.

Obstetrical Malpractice and Fetal Monitoring: Congenital conditions such as Down’s syndrome, anencephaly, hydrocephaly, holoprosencephaly and spina bifida can be identified prior to birth so as to allow a mother a choice regarding the pregnancy. Other abnormal conditions, such as placenta previa, placental abruption, intrauterine growth retardation and macrosomia, need to be identified so that they can be managed to lessen the risk of injury to the child.

Infections: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in every 25 patients gets an infection while in the hospital.

Misread Diagnostic Tests: When x-rays, CAT scans, MRIs, PAP smears, and other diagnostic tests are either not prescribed, performed too late or misinterpreted by physicians; conditions go undetected and untreated.

Failure to Diagnose Cardiovascular Disease: Untimely performance of an EKG test, stress testing, echocardiogram, cardiac imaging studies, angiography, a CT heart scan, heart magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positive emission tomography scan (PET scan), and other diagnostic tests may lead to a heart attack or cerebrovascular stroke.

Hospital Negligence: Understaffing, poor training, failure to provide treatment in a reasonable time, lack of cleanliness or failure to monitor or stabilize a patient’s condition contribute to adverse outcomes for patients.

Why You Need a Seasoned, Successful Marlton Medical Malpractice Attorney Who Will Fight for Your Family

The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C., are aware of the health care crisis in the U.S. that leads to understaffing, overwork, and communication failures in today’s medical environments. Insurance companies can be part of the problem, refusing to pay for necessary diagnostic tests, drugs, or treatment. Further, insurance carriers want to settle for as little as possible, hoping you will accept their offer and go away quietly.

However, when you’ve been severely injured due to a doctor’s negligence, you deserve more than hush money. That’s why we work with the most highly qualified experts, including board certified physicians, orthopedic surgeons, pain management specialists, and mental health professionals to fully document every aspect of your case. We exhaustively interview all parties involved and examine all evidence. While we work diligently to negotiate a generous settlement, we prepare all medical malpractice cases for trial.
