Holding Negligent Medical Professionals across Tucker Accountable

Medical malpractice is roughly defined as a negligent action taken by a doctor—or medical professional such as a nurse, physician’s assistant, surgical team member, or EMT worker—resulting in the personal injury or wrongful death of a patient. This is a very clinical definition of something personal and heartbreaking when the results are severe medical impairment or even wrongful death. Malpractice is a very real problem in the healthcare field today. Knowing examples, what to do to make certain a doctor has a good track record, and what hospitals have a high incidence of medical error can be helpful in preventing malpractice.

Learn how to protect yourself, and ask questions ahead of time. If you think you or a loved one may have been injured by a medical professional, please don't hesitate to contact a medical malpractice attorney in Atlanta. An attorney knows how to get full information from doctors' offices and hospitals to discover if errors were made, putting your mind at ease and justifying compensation if you were the victim of negligence. An attorney can also ensure that you act quickly—Georgia law has strict time limits for when you can seek compensation for medical malpractice.

Preventing & Discovering Medical Malpractice: Protecting Yourself & Your Loved Ones

Not all patient injury is deliberate. However, malpractice does occur, and patients should be aware of this possibility before entering a hospital for treatment of any kind. Surgery, anesthesia, administering of drugs, and other treatments can all result in malpractice when performed in violation of medical standards of care. Delayed diagnosis—whether of cancer, heart attack, stroke, or other conditions—and misdiagnosis can also constitute malpractice. The results can include serious injuries, brain trauma, birth trauma, paralysis, and death.

Hospital advocates visit each patient before and after a procedure to ensure they are doing well and receiving good care. This is a good time to ask for the hospital policies and to make certain living wills are in order should something amiss occur. These advocates act as social workers, and their job is to provide the patient with as much information about their doctor and the hospital they are being treated in as possible. If an advocate is hesitant to share this information, it may be a sign there is something to hide.

Ask as many questions as possible about the procedure. Knowing what to expect will help with deciding if the care given was quality or subpar. If something doesn’t feel right, if the surgery hasn’t gone well, or if a patient is still struggling to recover in the normal timeframe, asking the doctor for answers is not rude—it is imperative. If a doctor avoids specific questions about the care provided or hospital staff ignore a patient’s requests for another exam, continue to be vigilant and even ask for a second opinion.

Always know what to expect before entering a hospital for even the simplest procedure, and make certain nurses and staff go through the steps of the process beforehand. If something seems wrong or if something is making a patient uncomfortable, an honest and efficient staff will immediately go about finding a solution to any questions the patient poses. It’s a patient’s right to know what is going on with their care and their body.
