When you need care from healthcare professionals, you don’t think twice about seeing treatment from a hospital. All you want is to feel better. In Miami, you may have gone to Hialeah Hospital, one of the largest private hospitals in Florida. They specialize in heart care, care for the elderly, and maternity care. They also have an emergency department for your immediate needs.
What you didn’t expect was for their healthcare professionals to make your medical situation worse.
If you need a Hialeah Hospital accident lawyer, you can count on the Dante Law Firm to help you through this situation. Medical malpractice cases can be complicated and emotional, but our experienced team is ready.
Medical mistakes are not what you think about when you seek treatment, but they happen. In fact, they happen frequently. Up to 700 people die every day in US hospitals from medical mistakes that are preventable.
Even scarier is that 8.9 percent of surgeons in a Mayo Clinic study reported that they believe they’ve made a major medical error in the previous three months. If they admit to that many errors in a three month period, how many errors are made annually? Over the course of their careers?
Surgical errors are not the only mistakes that happen in hospitals. Commonly, infections are spread to patients because hospital personnel do not take appropriate steps to keep the area or themselves disinfected. Hospital infections are common and can result in worsening conditions or death for patients.
You should also know that doctors and nurses often make mistakes when giving medication to patients. They either give the wrong medicine, the wrong dosage, or give two or more medications that interact negatively with one another.
One of the scariest mistakes that can be made is a misdiagnosis that leads to a patient being discharged early, or not even admitted in the first place. Overworked doctors and nurses may take shortcuts and fail to perform necessary tests to determine what is wrong with the patient in front of them. When they do this, they are putting lives in danger.
Hospitals are supposed to be places of healing, but when their healthcare professionals are negligent in their duties, they need to be held accountable.
