Medical misdiagnosis: a common occurrence

Physicians are widely known as experts who give straightforward and honest medical guidance to those in their care. Yet when a patient realizes they have been misdiagnosed with a serious illness, that trust can completely dissipate. Misdiagnoses of conditions are more common than one might assume. Washington law protects patients who have experienced physical and mental damage as a result of such medical errors.

Common causes of a brachial plexus birth injury

If you are expecting, you may worry about the birth of your child and what can go wrong. Some birth injuries occur simply by accident, through circumstances that no one could possibly control. Other injuries occur due to doctor negligence. For example, infant brachial plexus injuries might occur due to trauma that occurred prior to labor and delivery, or it could happen because of the doctor's actions during the birth.

Understanding brain aneurysms

Many people in Washington may have heard references to brain aneurysms but may not really be familiar with what they are or how they might notice the symptoms of one. People who have brain aneurysms commonly are unaware of them because they can be free of symptoms until the problem becomes serious. 

Types of mistakes made in hospitals

If you or someone in your family has to go to the hospital in Washington, you will likely have many questions for the doctors and medical staff. When preparing for a hospital visit or even once a visit has already commenced, it is important that you know some of the things you should watch out for. While hospitals are the places that you should be able to count on to help you get well, they can also be the places that make you sick or even kill you.
