How medical malpractice cases may actually improve health care

Over the last few years, many of us in Pittsburgh have personally experienced the rising cost of health care. Hospitals and physicians have pointed to medical malpractice lawsuit as a major factor in the cost increase. They said that expensive payouts and frivilous lawsuits have driven health care costs up. Many have called for serious tort reform, including caps on malpractice payouts and shorter statutes of limitation.

25 percent of surgical errors caused by technology problems

Today, robotic equipment and other technology has become a common presence in Pittsburgh operating rooms. It is now normal for a surgeon to operate from a video game-like console or use enhanced imaging technology to get a better look at the inside of a patient during surgery. While many people praised these advances -- and rightfully so -- a recent study shows this technology presents some new challenges in the operating room.

In hospitals and other medical facilities, communication is extremely important. Doctors and nurses must check and double check that they have the right information for the right patient at all times. While many hospitals have a system in place to ensure adequate communication between health care workers, sometimes they forget that they must communicate thoroughly with the patient and his or her family too.

Failure to Diagnose most common reason for malpractice lawsuits

Pittsburgh residents know how important an early diagnosis is when you are dealing with a serious condition. Treating serious conditions like cancer and heart disease is almost always easier the earlier it is caught. As diseases progress they become increasingly difficult to treat, putting patients at risk of permanent injury or even death.
