Potential reasons behind the recent measles outbreak

It has recently been reported in a variety of sources that measles may be making a comeback in the United States, which could be a growing concern for many Arizona parents. While it can be argued that parents' failure to vaccinate their children against the disease has led to its resurgence, some believe doctors may also be contributing to the disease's return.

Unsterile intravenous fluid given to 40 hospital patients

Residents of Arizona may be interested to learn that at least 40 patients were recently administered a wrong intravenous fluid at hospitals in seven states. Though one of the patients died thereafter and several became ill, doctors have expressed uncertainty as to whether the cause of death was the mistaken intravenous fluid or not. In response to the incident, the Food and Drug Administration has issued a reminder to health care providers warning them to carefully check fluid bag labels before use.

Medications and circumstances to avoid during pregnancy

Arizona pregnant women may not be aware about the growing number of medications that have been linked with birth defects and even infant fatalities. In addition to not smoking or drinking during pregnancy, certain other circumstances should be avoided if possible to prevent harm to the fetus.

Pursuing civil action after malpractice

Many residents of Arizona are likely to require medical care or surgery at some point in their life. When events are unforeseen and lead to the unexpected injury or death of an individual, doctor error may be to blame. While medical facilities have several sanctions in place to avoid such accidents, you or your loved ones may aim to seek legal redress against negligent health care professionals.

Vicarious liability in medical malpractice cases

A person who has suffered an injury due to medical malpractice in Arizona may be able to hold both the physician as well as the physician's employing facility or hospital liable for the physician's negligence. Hospitals and medical facilities employing physicians may be held vicariously liable for the actions that caused the injury in some cases.
