Pediatric misdiagnosis and treatment errors

Getting good healthcare for your kids is of paramount importance. While you read literature on how to keep them healthy and shop around for the best doctor, there are a few things you should know about diagnostic errors and how they can affect your child's health and well-being.

Negligent medical practices can cause birth injuries

Every parent wants the experience of a new baby to be as exciting and enjoyable as possible. While uncomfortable moments come with the territory, when all is said and done most expect to go home with a healthy baby. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Even when it appears that the pregnancy was normal, there are things that can go wrong during labor and delivery, and it is the job of doctors, nurses and other hospital staff to stay alert and respond appropriately to prevent injuries and limit any harmful effects if possible. When they are unable to do this, it is important that parents look closely at the situation to determine whether negligent medical practices may have played a role in their child's injury.

Medical misdiagnosis, you may be at risk

According to a recent study published in the journal BMJ Quality & Safety, 1 in 20 patients will be misdiagnosed every year. That is approximately 12 million adult patients who have illnesses or conditions misdiagnosed annually. Researchers of the study believe that half of misdiagnosed cases result in severe harm to the patient.

Hospital and staff negligence could lead to death in New Jersey

Medical mistakes that take place in New Jersey and across the country can be devastating for those involved. If such a mistake or negligence on the part of a doctor or other hospital staff results in the death of a patient, the situation can become even more difficult to deal with. After such an incident, a family may feel the need to pursue a medical malpractice case against the parties deemed liable for the occurrence.
