Hospital Errors & Malpractice in Massachusetts

Hospital Errors

As a medical professional, one holds the responsibility to uphold the highest standard of care possible for all patients. When doctors, nurses and other hospital staff fail to uphold this standard and make irreplaceable mistakes or behave negligently when treating a patient, the results can be devastating.

Every day thousands of patients are admitted into hospitals seeking fast yet reliable and effective care. According to the American Hospital Association, 35,061,292 Americans were admitted to U.S. hospitals in 2016. As we see a growing demand for hospital care the healthcare professionals often become overwhelmed and overworked leading to tragic and preventable injuries caused by hospital errors.

There are multiple types of preventable mistakes and negligent behaviors that can cause a hospital error, including:

  • Anesthesia injury
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Failure to properly diagnose tests
  • Operating on the wrong patient
  • Patient abuse or neglect
  • Un-sanitized instruments

Medication Errors

According to data released by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at least one patient dies daily and nearly 1.3 million patients are injured each year in the United States due to medication errors.

As patients, we rely on medical professionals to properly administer prescription medications in the correct dosage. However, a majority of doctors handwriting isn’t illegible, making it hard for pharmacist to read the correct dosage causing pharmacists to dispense improper medication at times, or a nurse to misread a label, causing patients to suffer due to this misunderstanding.

Examples of medication errors include:

  • Administered incorrect medication
  • Improperly prescribed or administered medication due to medical staff error
  • Over/under prescribed medication
  • Prescribed or administered medication causing an allergic reaction
  • Prescribed or administered multiple medication, when taken together cause adverse effects
  • Prescribed the incorrect medication

These types of medication errors can happen in any given medical setting, and it is up to the trusted doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other medical staff to ensure you are receiving the proper doses of medication.
