Ways for patients to stay safe in the hospital

For many Pittsburgh residents a hospital stay is unavoidable. Patients go into the hospital with the expectation that they will be cared for and their condition will improve. For many patients this is what happens, but there are also patients who wind up in a worsened condition from a doctor error.

A vacuum assisted delivery can be dangerous

The birth of a baby for most Pittsburgh parents-to-be is an exciting event. Many parents opt to take birth classes prior to the baby being born in order to feel like they are prepared for anything. But, even the most well-thought-out birth can run into complications. Most of the time complications are not serious but occasionally a serious birth injury can occur.

Small percentage of doctors are responsible for medical mistakes

When Pittsburgh residents go to the doctor with an illness, they expect their doctor to have answers for them or at least send them to someone who will. Most of the time this is what happens and a patient feels confident in their doctor's decision. But, occasionally a medical error is made that results in the patient suffering from a serious injury, worsened condition, or even death.

Patients want to know if their doctor is on probation

The doctor-patient relationship in Pittsburgh is one where the patient places an enormous amount of trust in their doctor.

Most of the time this is what happens but occasionally a doctor makes a mistake and is subject to medical malpractice or discipline by the state boards.

Saying "I'm sorry" can go a long way for doctors

These extreme cases occur when a doctor leaves medical equipment inside of a patient or operates on the wrong body part. Although these surgical errors are rare, they still affect thousands of patients each year in the United States.
