The failure to diagnose the condition of a patient is the basis for many medical malpractice cases in Pennsylvania and in other states. One of the basic elements of a doctor’s responsibility to a patient is to follow medical standards in order to correctly diagnose a condition so that the patient can be properly treated. The accuracy of a doctor’s diagnosis can be critical.

Prescription pill abuse in Pennsylvania is a growing crisis

With recent reports of drug overdoses in the news, such as the heroin-related death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, most Americans are aware of the dangers of so-called “street” drugs.  But many heroin addicts actually started down the road to illegal drugs through legal prescription painkillers such as OxyContin and Percocet.  Pennsylvania medical leaders and the legislature are hoping to bring awareness to this problem in order to avoid the over-prescribing of such drugs and related medication errors.

The parents did not know that the powerful drug is an anti-psychotic medication used in the treatment of adults.
