We've read or heard reports of doctors and hospitals making medical and medication errors but since it has never happened to us or to a loved one, we never paid attention. But the fact is, cases like this does happen. And there have been a number of reported cases of death during medical procedures. There are also reported cases of people who died due to the adverse effects of medical treatment or advice and even deaths due to unnecessary surgeries hospital errors and infections.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities have their own protocols and set standards that they must adhere to when treating patients. If these standards were not followed and a patient is injured as a result, then this is something that should not be taken lightly. In fact, this is a valid claim for medical malpractice. The patient and their family should seek help to find out the patient's rights and legal options.
