The medical profession, as with so many others, has specialists and generalists. Patients are often referred to a specialist in Ohio when one physician is not sure of what the problem may be. A specialist is trusted to have more in-depth knowledge and to provide information to the patient to the best of his or her ability. A possible failure to correctly communicate medical findings resulted in a medical malpractice case against doctors in a neighboring state.
Living with pain can be debilitating. Few pains are as debilitating as severe pains in the back as this can be difficult to treat. Surgery is often indicated in Ohio as a possible means to relieve back pain. A woman who experienced severe pain in her back and tingling sensations in her arms, neck and hands underwent surgery in a nearby state in an attempt to relieve the suffering. As a result of the outcome of the procedure, the woman brought a medical malpractice suit against the doctors who operated on her.
Construction jobs involve certain risks and Ohio workers typically take appropriate precautions and safety measures to try to avoid injury. Even in the best situations, accidents still happen. When an accident resulting in an injury occurs in the workplace immediate medical care should be sought. People tend to trust the word of medical professionals when being treated in such circumstances, though a medical mistake led to a recent medical malpractice suit being filed.
Heart disease is a major cause of death in both men and women. Improved care and new techniques can do more than ever before to improve one's chance of survival after suffering a heart attack or other heart event. Possible complications from an emergency heart bypass surgery brought on by a possible medical mistake in an Ohio hospital are being blamed for the death of Neil Armstrong whose celebrated walk on the moon happened 50 years ago.
A woman was watching television with her husband and started to experience trouble breathing. He took his wife to the hospital to find out what was wrong and get treatment. She died a few hours later from an overdose of fentanyl, a powerful pain medication. She was one of 25 suspicious deaths at an Ohio hospital, and all 25 of the patients were under the care of the same doctor. Were their deaths the result of a medical mistake?
When a loved becomes ill and needs to go to the hospital for care, one typically trusts that the medical staff at the hospital will do their best to deliver the highest level of care possible. At an Ohio hospital where 25 people recently died, that does not appear to have been the case. A doctor who has been charged with murder may be guilty of medical malpractice.
A child's birth is one of the most eagerly anticipated events in a woman's life in Ohio. Everyone hopes for the birth of a healthy baby and entrusts their care to the medical community in the expectation that they will do everything possible to deliver a healthy child. In a recent trial in another state, the jury awarded a mother a substantial sum in her medical malpractice lawsuit.
Hospitals are typically where sick or injured people go to get well. As such, one would certainly expect a certain standard of cleanliness and freedom from bacteria, particularly in a newly opened facility in Ohio. There have been two lawsuits filed against Mount Carmel Grove City, a hospital that opened for patient care in April of this year. The most recent suit stems from a visitor to the hospital contracting a disease that is believed to have been spread through the water system. The presence of a dangerous bacteria in the water supply could be a contributing factor in a medical malpractice lawsuit and could also be grounds for a premises liability claim.
The anticipation of the birth of a new baby can be one of the happiest times in a woman's life in Ohio. If a woman is in her 30s or older, concern for the health of the unborn baby may prompt her to undergo certain tests to help determine the health of the fetus. Failure to accurately disclose the results of such tests resulted in a medical malpractice case in another state.
Mount Carmel Grove City hospital has reported an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease with at least 14 confirmed cases, including one death. The $361-million facility opened on April 28, and the first case of Legionnaires' was reported on April 29. This could indicate a serious problem with the facility's water system or maintenance practices.
