Understanding Medical Errors in New Hampshire

Most people are oblivious to the seriousness and frequency of medical errors. A recent Institute of Medicine report reveals that as many as 98,000 people lose their lives each year due to medical errors in American hospitals. Shockingly, more people die due to medical errors than car accidents.

Are you or a loved one currently in the hospital or scheduled for a procedure in the near future? If so, you should understand medical errors. A medical error can result from:

  • Medicines: Being prescribed the wrong type or dosage of medicine can be disastrous. It can leave you with a permanent injury and can even prove fatal.
  • Surgery: Having a surgical procedure should never be taken lightly. Negligence on behalf of your surgeon can leave you with a lifetime of pain and suffering. In some cases, doctors have performed the wrong procedure. Some victims have even had body parts removed by mistake.
  • Wrong Diagnosis: A wrong diagnosis can lead to unnecessary procedures. The results can be deadly if your medical professional fails to determine that you have cancer.
  • Faulty Equipment: This can be equally as dangerous. What happens when the equipment being used to treat your condition fails or was manufactured improperly?
