Excessive dose of painkillers leads to a medical malpractice case

Physical pain is hard to live with and can be severely debilitating. It can interfere with one's ability to work and live on a day-to-day basis. Combating pain is a major focus of modern medicine. While a doctor's mission is to help heal and relieve pain, a doctor also takes an oath to cause no harm. A doctor in Ohio is being sued for medical malpractice related to pain medication.

The doctor had prescribed pain medication for a 64-year-old woman in his care in a Columbus hospital. The woman allegedly died as a result of an excessive dose of painkillers. The doctor in question is accused of ordering large doses of pain medication for dozens of patients under his care.

Watching a loved one suffer in pain is difficult to bear. Finding out treatment meant to relieve the pain may have caused a loved one's death is surely heartbreaking. The doctor in this case is being accused of having ordered potentially fatal doses of medication for 29 patients over a period of several years. He is currently facing charges in 23 wrongful death and medical malpractice cases.

The death of a loved one is never easy. When it appears to have been caused at the hands of a person who was trusted with the loved one's care, the emotional pain may be unbearable.  No one can undo the mistake that may have caused the loved one's death. A consultation with a personal injury attorney can assist a client in determining if grounds exist for a medical malpractice suit. A civil suit in the state of Ohio may provide compensation for medical costs, end-of-life costs and other verifiable losses.
