Doctors must address possible kidney transplant complications

We are at a point in medical history where organ transplants have become common place. Countless lives have been saved because doctors can replace organs that have been damaged or are failing to function. But in order to perform an organ transplant, it is critical that a sufficient standard of care be applied by medical professionals

Can a lawsuit do more than provide compensation?

Imagine that you have been admitted to the hospital for a medical condition. Because of most doctors’ experience and educational background, you trust that you are in good hands and will be well taken care of. But during your stay, a medical mistake occurs and you are left with a debilitating injury. What would you do?

Family seeks compensation for negligent treatment of their son

Even though we know that there are some medical conditions for which there is no cure, this does not make it any easier when a loved one dies as a result of a serious condition. Such was the case for a mother and father in Santa Ana whose son suffered brain damage because of complications with his condition. But that grief now has an edge of anger because they recently learned that their son’s current condition might have been a result of hospital negligence.

Hospital loses community's trust after patient deaths

While trust is usually earned in most situations, this isn’t always the case with doctors and hospitals. That’s because most people here in Arizona, as well as across the country, have a natural belief that a hospital and its staff will help sick and injured people get better. We trust that they will provide us with the highest standard of care possible and we do this almost without question.

Patient dies, anesthesiologist accused of 'distracted doctoring'

Most people here in Arizona know that there is risk in every surgery. But we are often comforted when a doctor tells us that it’s a routine procedure.

Arizona appeals court upholds $7.2 million med-mal verdict

An Arizona woman received good news this month when the Arizona Court of Appeals affirmed a lower court decision to award the woman more than $7.2 million for injuries suffered because of a surgical error. Her medical malpractice case was against Payson Healthcare Management who she claims failed to diagnose an infection that later resulted in further surgery and a chronic pain condition. Although Payson Healthcare Management appealed the case, the appeals court found no error in judgment and therefore affirmed the lower court's decision.

Lack of communication reason for hospital negligence?

Residents of Phoenix, Arizona, expect a certain standard of care when being treated in a hospital or medical setting. Not only do patients expect doctors and staff to act in their best interests, they also assume medical staff is communicating about issues in a timely, comprehensive manner. For one couple in another state, however, failures in staff communications led to hospital negligence and long-term consequences.

Woman sues for poor standard of care during foot surgery

Across the country, doctors and other medical providers deliver excellent care to thousands of patients every day. Unfortunately, there are times when the standard of care slips for providers in Arizona and other states.

A woman in another state is suing the doctor who performed her foot surgery, claiming that the procedure did not meet applicable standards of care.

Settlement reached in hospital negligence lawsuit

Doctors and patients alike consider cataract surgery to be a routine procedure that is very commonly performed on older patients.
