Mother claims that her C-section was a surgery gone wrong

Cesarean sections can be an enormously useful procedure for pregnant mothers whose lives are threatened due to pregnancy or labor. However, one mother claims that one of her C-sections was a surgery gone wrong and may have done more harm than good. The rising number of C-sections is likely affecting New Jersey mothers as well, as the CDC reported that Cesareans accounted for roughly a third of all births in 2012.

Mistakes reduced, but hospital negligence still a reality

Hospitals, which are intended to be institutions of health and healing, can sometimes actually cause unintended damage. However, recent efforts in New Jersey have actually reduced the overall rate of mistakes, infections and injuries in 2013.

Hospital and staff negligence could lead to death in New Jersey

Hospital ordered to pay $5.2M after failure to diagnose cancer

People need to be able to trust their doctors and other medical professionals.

However, there are times when medical professionals make mistakes which prove to be incredibly detrimental to patients. This seems to have been what happened in a recent case involving a failure to diagnose cancer.
