There are several hospitals in the state of Illinois that provide medical care to residents and visitors within the state. While most medical professionals do their best to ensure the safety and well-being of their patients are being met, there are unfortunate accidents or incidents that occur every year while being treated in hospitals across the country and in the state of Illinois. Many times when medical mistakes occur, the victim suffers extended physical, financial, and emotional consequences that affect themselves and their loved ones. If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident or incident with Sherman Hospital and you believe that an instance of malpractice has occurred, contact Newland & Newland, LLP today for assistance with a claim.
Anesthesia is the administration of medicine that causes loss of responsiveness, loss of reflexes, and the inability to feel pain. It is most often used prior to surgeries. While anesthesia errors do not occur commonly, the consequences of a mistake while administering anesthesia can be devastating. Anesthesiologists are tasked with reviewing a patient’s history to ensure that no adverse reactions to the medication occur, dispensing the proper amount of medicine to the patient, ensuring that a patient’s vital signs are sufficient throughout a procedure, and ensuring that a patient awakens after a procedure. Errors with the administration of anesthesia are sometimes more dangerous than surgical errors as patients have experienced permanent injury, brain damage, and even death from errors. When these types of errors occur to you or your loved ones, you deserve relief. Our attorneys will work aggressively to get you and your loved ones relief for these types of injuries because these incidents could have been prevented in most cases.
Failure to Communicate Lab Results
When a patient goes to a hospital and presents symptoms of illness, doctors often conduct a range of medical exams to determine the cause of the patient’s sickness. However, in the majority of cases patients never see the lab results that occur. Instead, medical professionals review the results and inform you of whether anything on the results presented a cause for concern. When a medical professional withholds or fails to disclose medical information for one reason or another, it deprives you of crucial information and, in some circumstances, prevents you from obtaining proper treatment. In fact, it is a major cause for medical malpractice claims. If you or someone you know did not receive pertinent information about your lab results and it caused you injuries, contact Newland & Newland, LLP for assistance today.
