While it is relatively common for babies in Arizona to be born with slight jaundice, if the condition is not properly treated, the buildup of bilirubin in the infant's system may lead to permanent brain damage. If your baby suffered from chronic bilirubin encephalopathy that was not promptly addressed, your child may be left with permanent and heartbreaking brain damage as a result.
The Arizona Medical Board categorizes the complaints they receive into four different groups. The moral and ethical category includes sexual misconduct with a patient, fraudulent billing, violating prescribing statutes and the like. Legal errors include complaints that violate the law but do not necessarily endanger patients. Most doctor errors known to the board fall under standard of care, and substance abuse, psychiatric impairment and behavioral disorders fall into the fourth category.
