How patients can protect themselves against medical errors

Arizona residents may be aware of a neighboring state's efforts to curb hospital errors. Hundreds of hospitals have been publicly shamed through news releases that describe details of medical and surgical errors that have happened in California. But the rates of medical errors in that state have not reduced significantly since this shaming system has been in place. Across the country, medical errors are still a significant problem, so patient advocates have advised patients to be prepared to protect themselves when seeking medical treatment.

Reckless use of labor-inducing drugs linked to birth injuries

The impending birth of a new family member is an exciting time for Arizona parents, but the process always carries with it elements of risk for the mother and infant. Although medical personnel generally strive to produce healthy outcomes, physicians sometimes fail to think through the consequences of inducing labor with drugs. The administration of oxytocin, Pitocin or prostaglandin during your birth could have been the step that deprived your infant of oxygen or led to your unnecessary C-section surgery or uterine rupture.

9-year-old awarded $3 million for birth injury

Arizona women who are getting ready to give birth may be interested to learn that a jury awarded $3 million to a child who was injured during the delivery process. According to the lawsuit, an obstetrician forcefully pulled an infant out by his head, causing permanent nerve damage to the right arm.
