Wisdom tooth surgery may come with serious risks

It is common for teenagers and young adults across America, including in Rhode Island, to have their wisdom teeth pulled. In most cases, the procedure results in little more than a few days of mild discomfort and swelling. However, there may be more risks involving wisdom teeth surgery than people realize. Some complications may cause lifelong pain, while others can be more serious or life-threatening.

Mothers may want a say in their labor and delivery options

At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, Ltd., we believe you should have the right to choose the type of care you receive during your pregnancy, and the right to make informed decisions on your labor and delivery process. We understand that some situations necessitate a planned or emergency cesarean section; however, Providence doctors should not force you into unnecessary surgery simply because it is considered standard procedure after a previous C-section.

What should you ask your doctor to avoid medication errors?

Like most Providence residents, when you are prescribed a medication it would seem natural to trust that your doctor and pharmacist know what they are doing. Unfortunately, mistakes involving prescription drugs occur on a regular basis across the country. Common medication errors you might encounter could include being given the wrong dosage instructions, getting your medication switched for another that has a similar-sounding name or taking your new medication with others that are not safely combined.

Blood clots may pose a serious threat to patient safety

There can be few things quite as frightening to people as an invisible, yet life-threatening illness that carries little to no symptoms. The attorneys at DeLuca & Weizenbaum, Ltd., have represented numerous Rhode Island clients who were harmed by doctors who failed to diagnose serious medical conditions.

Air embolisms may threaten patient health

Patients in Rhode Island and elsewhere face numerous risks when they go into surgery. Some of these risks, such as adverse reactions to anesthesia, are unforeseeable and may occur despite doctors’ best precautions. Other dangers are the result of a preventable medical mistake. One such risk is an air embolism. This, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, is what happens when air bubbles enter the bloodstream, which may cause a serious health hazard.
