Serial malpractice offenders: scary when the subject is physicians

A lead-in to today's blog post might be termed "Reasonable assumptions gone awry." The facts that emerge from a recent article in an esteemed medical journal reveal with chilling force how something that should be a reality in the medical profession is far from uniformly being the case.

Judge, VA reach opposite conclusions in Arizona malpractice case

The officials from the US Department of Veterans Affairs said that a former patient's inability to use his arm in an uncompromised manner had nothing to do with negligence on the part of the doctor who performed surgery on him.

You can regain empowerment after suffering a surgical error

Most of us want to live our lives with a sense of personal empowerment. We prefer to make our own decisions whenever possible. However, there are times when we have to trust the decisions of others.

This makes sense as these people have the training required to help us.

Robots cannot eliminate all surgical errors

When we undergo any form of invasive surgery, we naturally want our doctor to have a steady pair of hands. In fact, saying that someone has "the hands of a surgeon" means that they can use their hands in skillful, competent manner. This is vital while in the operating room because harmful surgical errors could result should a doctor not be steady and skilled.
