Precautions against hospital negligence for Maryland patients

When a loved one is admitted into a hospital, some people may worry about the standard of care that their loved one might receive. There may be a number of instances where corrective action can be taken for medical malpractice or hospital negligence, but there are other cases where the consequences of hospital negligence are tragic. Under Maryland law, healthcare providers have a duty to give the best possible care, but some precautions on the part of the patients and family members can also help.

Necessary information about a Maryland cancer misdiagnosis

Millions of people are dying each year because of cancer. In fact, according to the American Cancer Society, over 1 million people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year. But, what happens if the actual cancer was misdiagnosed?

Surgical error may have caused brain death

Any healthcare professional in Maryland knows that the vital signs of a patient must be properly supervised. Regardless of whether the patient has been administered medication or underwent a simple surgery, monitoring patient vital signs will help the doctor recognize, if something is wrong with the patient. Unfortunately, the hospital that provided care for a 13-year-old girl allegedly failed to promptly observe and supervise the teen's vital signs, resulting in a serious injury.

Technology can be a double-edged sword in some hospitals

Technology dominates most aspects of modern American life. It plays significant roles in commerce, communications, entertainment, science, the arts and healthcare. Many U.S. hospitals, including most of those in Maryland, now routinely use high-tech medical devices and equipment to be more competitive and more efficient and to provide quality medical services to patients. However, some of these devices are not entirely without dangers, and some can injure or kill patients when used incorrectly of when they fail.
