Know what you can do if you are the victim of a medication error

Medications are great tools that doctors have at their disposal to try to help patients to heal and recover from medical issues. The problem with these medications is that they can be dangerous if there are ever any errors made with them.

Can I take action if I'm harmed by a nurse?

When you go to the doctor's office or to a hospital, your primary contact is likely the nursing staff. You might have already thought about how serious it would be if your doctor was negligent or caused you harm, but most people haven't thought about how serious it is when a nurse does the same thing.

Get help when you are injured by a medical professional

We recently discussed preeclampsia and why it is so important that a pregnant woman who has the condition receives an accurate diagnosis. If you recall, this condition can be devastating for the mother and her unborn baby if it isn't diagnosed properly and treated swiftly. This isn't the only condition that can affect a pregnant woman and her unborn baby.

Understaffed nursing homes pose a risk for residents

If you have a loved one living in a nursing home or continuing care center, you probably performed your due diligence in terms of checking out the home and its staff to make sure the environment is safe, comfortable and enjoyable. You cannot always get the complete picture just by reading online reviews or touring a facility, however. A serious problem affecting many of these facilities is understaffing.

Is using cameras in nursing homes a good idea?

Leaving a parent in a nursing home is not an easy decision, and you may worry about how well the staff is treating your mom or dad. It is a valid concern as abuse and neglect are common in nursing homes, even when unintentional. It can be hard to detect abuse or neglect depending on the mental and medical conditions of your parent. A few states have addressed this problem by allowing cameras in nursing homes to monitor safety and help in litigation. However, this solution is not as cut and dry as it may seem.

Preeclampsia that isn't properly diagnosed can cause problems

A pregnant woman has a lot to think about. Throughout her pregnancy, she is trusting that the medical professionals covering her care will take care of any possible issues so that she and her baby can make it to the end of the pregnancy without harm. For some women, this doesn't occur. It is possible that a woman can suffer from preeclampsia and not be diagnosed by her medical care team.
