Understanding Where Your Doctor May Have Gone Wrong
When protocol is not upheld strictly enough, your doctor may overlook certain details that are essential to running a smooth operation or checkup. The following are some of the most common errors involving malpractice:
· Surgical errors: Sometimes, surgeons accidentally leave surgical tools in the patient’s body, such as needles or sponges. Other times, they may operate on the wrong patient’s body by failing to first verify his or her identity, operate on the wrong limb, or even remove the wrong organ.
· Diagnostic errors: This can mean either being diagnosed late into your illness, getting a wrong diagnosis (misdiagnosis) or having your doctor fail to diagnose you altogether. It could be that your test results were miscalculated, that your doctor did not have the necessary equipment to determine your conditions, or that a nurse or staff member simply forgot to report your test results in time to your doctor.
· Medication errors: Whether your doctor’s handwriting was simply unreadable or your nurse forgot to verify your drug interactions are all reasons that could get you prescribed with the wrong medication. Nurses and pharmacists also sometimes make mistakes, administering the wrong medicine or the wrong dose.
