Hospital admits guilt but no award is made in fatal error

People in Washington State who want to understand the process of seeking justice after a medical mistake has happened should know that there may be intricate details involved in doing this. Certainly being able to prove that an error was made is important but that is not the only thing that may need to happen in order for injured patients or their family members to receipt appropriate compensation.

The danger of healthcare-acquired infections

Anyone who has ever been in a hospital in Washington State whether as a patient or a visitor of a patient should hopefully have been aware of measures taken by the staff to maintain a clean and sterile environment. Unfortunately, too many people nationwide develop infections from unsanitary conditions in a hospital. In fact, Becker's Hospital Review indicates that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state as many as one out of every 25 people admitted to a hospital will contract such an infection.

Women: Be on the look out for these heart attack symptoms

The public -- and sometimes even doctors -- have the misconception that heart attacks don't happen to women, and that they're a male health condition. Because of this, it's not uncommon for women to suffer from heart attacks that go unnoticed. Or, if a woman is having a heart attack, the doctor could fail to diagnose it or the woman could fail to get immediate medical attention.
