More than 4,000 medical mistakes occur every year

Arizona patients may be interested to learn that a study discovered that more than 4,000 preventable medical mistakes are made each and every year. These preventable mistakes, often called "never events" by researchers, are mistakes that reportedly should never occur. These mistakes can include leaving foreign objects inside patients after surgery or performing the wrong medical procedure.

Preparing for a medical malpractice case

Patients in Arizona might benefit from learning more about some of the documentation required for successfully bringing a medical malpractice case to court. In order to gain an accurate perspective, injured patients should be aware of which documents to collect before conferring with legal counsel. Some of the documents patients are advised to gather are those related to the claim, including any documentation received from the defendant, evidence of lost wages and invoices from the medical provider.

Birth injuries due to medical malpractice

Some women who live in Arizona prefer the process of a natural birth as opposed to the cesarean section delivery method. When intervention is required, however, vacuum suction and forceps delivery can ease a difficult vaginal delivery. The decision to use one method over the other in assisted vaginal delivery is typically based on the clinical situation involved and the expertise of the doctor.

Complications that can show up after stem cell transplants

Cancer patients in Arizona who have had stem cell transplants face the possibility of certain medical complications after the procedure. The types of issues that stem cell transplant recipients could experience will vary greatly and depend on the kind of transplant that they had. Some complications are caused by the secondary treatments that patients are given around the time that they had a stem cell transplant.
