Skin cancer removal fuels surgery gone wrong claim

A cancer diagnosis can be one of the most frightening things to deal with as a New Jersey patient. Even if rigorous chemotherapy or radiation treatments are ultimately not required, most patients suffering from cancer must still undergo surgery to remove cancerous tumors or lesions. A recently filed medical malpractice suit claims that one cancer patient became the victim of a surgery gone wrong after his initial diagnosis. 

A foreign object left behind in surgery not so uncommon

Doctors spend an enormous amount of time earning undergraduate degrees, attending medical school and going through the rigors of residency in order to become as knowledgeable on the subject of health care as possible. It might stand to reason that this dedication would lead to an eventual eradication of serious medical errors, but the evidence demonstrates that this is not true. Whether it is a foreign object left behind or an operation on the wrong body part, recent data reveals that New Jersey residents might not be as safe during surgery as they once thought.

Doctor negligence alleged by dying nurse

An emergency room nurse claims that doctors continually ignored the signs that she was suffering from something serious and dismissed her concerns when she sought help for troubling symptoms. Unfortunately, even medical workers in New Jersey who understand the implications of certain symptoms can still be affected by doctor negligence. However, after dedicating their careers to caring for others, it can devastating to learn that multiple doctors failed to diagnose a deadly condition.

Patient strikes face on floor after alleged hospital negligence

A patient in a state neighboring New Jersey suffered various injuries after a staff at the nursing home where she resided allegedly neglected to follow the home's policy for moving patients. The worker now faces criminal charges for her actions, although victims of hospital negligence might not be fully satisfied with the outcome of criminal investigations. Typically, medical malpractice suits are one of the most effective ways for victims to receive compensation for injuries and related damages.

Antibiotics overused with failure to diagnose, study says

The improper and overuse of antibiotics is a serious problem facing patients and health care providers in New Jersey. Unfortunately, the failure to diagnose a patient properly can lead to wrongly prescribing an antibiotic. Taking antibiotics when not needed can cause a lot more harm than just reducing their overall effectiveness.
