When does a second opinion make sense?

No Rhode Island resident wants to receive a bleak medical diagnosis. Similarly, nobody wants to have a potentially serious condition overlooked, only to worsen for lack of proper and prompt treatment. These are just some of the types of medical errors that may lead to injury or even death. While it seems that the media continually offers some report of medical negligence, how can you feel secure in the safety and reliability of your health care today?

Cerebral palsy and birth injuries

The last thing expectant parents in Rhode Island want to think about is their baby becoming ill or experiencing some type of injury during the birthing process. While a large percentage of the time, this does not happen there are all too many situations in which it does. When these problems occur due to the negligence of doctors or other medical staff, the emotional trauma that families must face can be great. Cerebral palsy is one condition that can be the result of an injury that occurs during birth.

Medication errors subject of new investigation

In the world of medical malpractice, there are many types of errors that can occur that may negatively impact Rhode Island patients. Among these are errors involving prescription medications. A doctor’s poor handwriting is nothing to be joking about as even this can lead to an error if the wrong drug is given to a patient as a result.

Medication errors you might not know about

At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, Ltd., we are aware of the dangers you might face if you are taking prescription medications. Some of the risks, such as adverse side effects, are something that every Rhode Island patient faces. Others, however, are the result of a mistake on the doctor’s or pharmacist’s part.
