What you should know about never events

When it comes to medical malpractice in Illinois, you may be under the impression that many events are due to small errors that lead to major complications. However, there is a growing number of medical malpractice incidents that involve mistakes so egregious they should never happen. These errors are often referred to as never events in the medical community. Even though there are checks and balances in place to prevent them, more and more patients suffer health injuries and complications and lose their lives to them every day. 

Common types of surgical errors

Surgical errors number among the more common types of medical malpractice. Even highly qualified, reputable health care providers can end up making an error that can seriously affect a patient's health.

Do not overlook emotional abuse in nursing homes

You may already be aware of the risk of physical abuse nursing home residents face. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for the elderly to be subjected to neglect and blatant physical harm. This is not the only form of abuse that can take place in a nursing home, though—emotional harm is arguably just as common and potentially just as detrimental. There are a few things you should know about the phenomenon.

Is there such a thing as a nonharmful medical error?

There are countless errors made every day by doctors, surgeons and other medical professionals. Some of these are obviously more injurious than others. Failure to diagnose a life-threatening illness may be fatal, for example. There are other supposedly innocuous errors, however, that are often called nonharmful errors. It is worth wondering, however, whether any medical error can truly be harmless.

Types of medical errors you should be on guard against

Whether you are in excellent health or have some health concerns, at some point you will need to see a doctor for treatment. As you are researching your options in Illinois, you should take some time to learn about the different kinds of medical malpractice that you may encounter. Medical mistakes and malpractice issues may be unpleasant for you to think about while you are contemplating your care options, but it is important for you to do so. Knowing the types of errors and issues that can result in your harm can help you to make better decisions regarding your medical care. 

Was your C-section a medical necessity?

Women who give birth may do so naturally or by cesarean section — a procedure that entails delivery through an incision made in the mother’s abdomen. The latter of these options has increased dramatically in frequency over the past few decades, and there are a number of reasons to opt for a C-section. According to The Washington Post, though, some mothers feel pressured into the procedure. Here are a few factors to consider if you believe your C-section may have been unnecessary.
