Mt. Sinai Hospital is the largest independent hospital in South Florida, and while they have a good reputation, we know that sometimes there are careless healthcare professionals. While you may not think of hospitals as places where people get hurt, statistics paint another picture.
The third leading cause of death in the US is medical errors. Mistakes that shouldn’t have been made. This is an alarming statistic. Estimates range from 250,000 to more than 400,000 deaths annually from medical mistakes. The death of a loved one can require our team to file a wrongful death suit. That’s not including how many people suffer from careless errors and live to tell about it.
According to the CDC, about 1 in every 25 people acquire an infection in the hospital every day. Many of these are due to an infected central line or IV site, places that should be checked and maintained regularly by nurses and staff. Other infections happen due to surgical site infections. Carelessness on the part of doctors and nurses can lead to infections that turn into sepsis, a major problem for people with weakened immune systems.
Another common problem in hospitals is a misdiagnosis. While we know doctors will not get their diagnosis correct every time, they are much more likely to misdiagnose a patient if they fail to interpret a patient’s symptoms or perform regular tests. If a doctor is too busy or is pressured to get patients out of an emergency department, they may discharge a patient too early. Both a misdiagnosis and an early discharge can lead to patients becoming much worse.
At alarming rates, patients in hospitals experience medication mix ups. Some don’t receive their proper medications while others receive the wrong dosage. In either case, this carelessness on the part of a healthcare professional can jeopardize people’s health.
