Medical negligence and newborn infections

Newborns in Arizona hospitals can become seriously ill if they contract an infection, so doctors that treat them are expected to monitor them closely. If your newborn has been harmed by an infection during a hospital stay, you may have a case for filing a medical malpractice claim against the health care providers that treated your baby.

Problems with computerized diagnosis

Modern health care is flooded with such massive amounts of data that it is an increasing struggle for doctors to adequately keep track of all the information. This has led to an inefficient system increasingly reliant on specialists. Arizona patients often spend a great deal of time and expense bouncing between their general care physician and sometimes dozens of specialized physicians. There is often limited communication between them. Many patients are left confused and with contradictory information. There is also a strong chance important information will be missed or miscommunicated.

Shoulder dystocia birth injuries

Though shoulder dystocia is rare, it is a potential risk during any vaginal delivery birth in an Arizona hospital. Shoulder dystocia occurs when an infant's shoulders get stuck in the mother's pelvis during childbirth. Most of the injuries that are caused by shoulder dystocia are minor, but a small percentage of these injuries can lead to permanent disability.

7 ways to avoid misdiagnosis

Pulmonary embolism (PE) can be life threatening and is often misdiagnosed. In fact, 1 in 3 patients presenting symptoms in an emergency room will be misdiagnosed. PE is a condition that occurs when there is a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in the lungs. A common cause for the blockage is a clot that travels up to the lung from another part of the body.

How to be the best patient possible

It's not something most of think about. Sure, we've heard horror stories about people having the wrong breast removed during a mastectomy, or someone having the wrong kidney removed. But these seem like very unusual occurrences. They can't possibly be common or no doctor would be able to practice medicine, right? Maybe not.

Helping medical malpractice victims pursue compensation

If you suspect that something went wrong while you or a family member were being treated at an Arizona hospital, it may be wise to seek legal guidance. Even if you don't know for certain that a health care provider committed medical malpractice, an attorney could offer helpful advice. Getting in touch with our legal team at the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C. could help you to get to the bottom of what happened during your treatment.
