Lack of reentry oversight for doctors prompts concern

When it comes to undergoing a particular medical treatment or surgical procedure in Rhode Island, many patients only consent because they trust in the extensive training and practical experience of their doctors. What happens in cases, then, when a particular physician has not actually practiced medicine in years? As it turns out, thousands of doctors reenter the workforce every year after taking extended breaks from practicing, and many of them face inconsistent requirements for treating patients again.

Postpartum hemorrhage injuries and concerns

Often times, a great deal of emphasis is placed on pregnancy and birth-related medical care by OB/GYN physicians and other medical professionals. Expecting mothers are educated about the various stages of pregnancy and childbirth, but may not be aware of the many medical concerns and complications that can arise after the birthing processes is over. The unfortunate truth is that postpartum hemorrhaging continues to be a major issue in the U.S., resulting in serious injuries and deaths every year.

How do medication errors happen?

The Mayo Clinic discusses common medication errors that occur in homes and hospital settings across the country, and explains that they are incredibly prevalent. No matter if the medication in question is a prescription drug or available over-the-counter, there is always the potential for it to be improperly dispensed or administered. Beyond that, issues relating to physicians and/or pharmacists issuing wrong prescriptions are not uncommon. The truth of the matter is that a serious and potentially life-threatening medication error can occur at any stage of a drug being prescribed, dispensed or administered.
