More about medical malpractice settlements

Arizona patients may benefit from learning more about a study that recently reviewed existing trends among medical malpractice lawsuits. Researchers discovered that the majority of the settlements included various nondisclosure provisions, some which actually impose restrictions beyond the scope of improving health care for patients. The study involved reviewing settled malpractice cases from over 6,000 physicians. According to the researchers, there were nondisclosure clauses included in 90 percent of the final settlements.

FDA reports 40 patients given unsterilized saline

Arizona residents may be interested to know that at least 40 patients in seven states mistakenly received unsterilized, practice intravenous fluids while in the hospital instead of the sterile saline solution that is protocol, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Several patients became ill and one person may have died as a result, though doctors are not positive the unsterilized solution was to blame for the death.

Information regarding misdiagnoses

Misdiagnosis of disease is a major problem for the Arizona medical community, and it is one that continues to be serious. A misdiagnosis is generally considered a medical diagnosis that subsequent testing or findings have conclusively determined was in error, missed or delayed. Misdiagnosis may lead to death, and is often a contributing factor in medical malpractice suits.
