Neonatal hypoglycemia can be very serious for newborn babies

Pittsburgh residents who are expecting a baby are very excited for the upcoming birth and new addition to their family. Most births go as expected, with the newborn joining their family at home in a few days. But occasionally a birth injury occurs that can cause an unexpected serious injury.

Overprescribing pain medication can have serious consequences

Many Pittsburgh residents will need a prescription pain medication at least once in their lives. Surgery, injuries and other circumstances can lead to a person needing pain medication. Doctors have the responsibility to provide these medications in an accurate and appropriate manner. Most of the time this happens, but occasionally medication errors occur.

Nurse fatigue can be dangerous for patients

In the United States there are six nurses for every medical doctor which means that nurses spend much more time with patients than doctors do. For most Pittsburgh residents it means that they receive excellent care while they are in the hospital. But many nurses are overworked and overtired and can easily make medical mistakes. Errors that occur because nurses are fatigued can be fatal for a patient.

Despite safety efforts, surgical errors still occur

As we have discussed in previous blog postings, surgical errors are still occurring in the U.S. There have been many recent safety efforts designed at minimizing these preventable surgical errors and they are rare. But, there are still hundreds that occur each year.

We competently handle medication error cases

As discussed last week on the blog, anesthesia errors are far too common in the medical field. Yet, these mishaps are by no means the only type of medication error that occurs. In fact, nearly every medication can cause serious injury if taken improperly. Therefore, many Pennsylvanians trust their doctors to properly prescribe the right drugs in the right amounts. Likewise, people also probably expect their pharmacist to correctly fill the prescription. Unfortunately, though, this is not always the case.

What might I recover in a wrongful death lawsuit?

Facing the loss of a loved one can be one of the hardest things to do in life. Your emotional turmoil can be great, and you may struggle to cope with the reality that you will never see or hear your loved one again. Precious family moments will pass without the person's presence, and you will never again be able to celebrate life's milestones with the deceased. Making matters worse, there may be very real financial ramifications of your loved one's passing, including medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages.

Blood clots can be misdiagnosed

When a Pittsburgh resident goes to the doctor or to the ER with a medical condition they expect that they will receive a correct diagnosis. No one expects that their doctor will give them a wrong diagnosis or will suffer from failure to diagnose a serious condition. But, for thousands of patients this has become reality. One condition that is often misdiagnosed are blood clots.

Anesthesia errors are still an issue for patients

Most Pittsburgh residents will need to have surgery at least once in their life. Many times this surgery is performed using anesthesia. The use of anesthesia can be nerve-wracking for the patient especially because anesthesia errors can cause serious injuries.
