Repeat surgery required after error

New England patients who must undergo even the most minor surgical procedure can reasonably be nervous about doing so. Fears about being put under the effects of anesthesia and the challenges associated with recovery are just some of the issues to face. Sadly, those are not the only issues that patients have to think about. Surgeons and others on surgical teams can make mistakes along the way.

The dangers of a silent stroke

If you are like many Rhode Island residents, you are concerned about the dangers of medical errors today. When you go to the doctor, you want to be able to trust completely that you are given accurate information and receiving the best care. Sadly, this is not always the case. Sometimes problems result from diagnosis issues. This may include you being given a diagnosis which is not accurate. It may also include you being given no diagnosis at all when you do, in fact, have a serious problem. This can even happen with a stroke.

Understanding preeclampia

Rhode Island parents looking forward to the births of their babies should be able to enjoy the nine months of pregnancy with anticipated delight. However, the reality always exists that some type of medical problem can develop. In the ideal world, such problems will be found and treated with proper prenatal care and checkups. When that does not happen, mothers and babies alike can find themselves at risk for serious injuries.

Questions to ask before you have surgery

If you need to undergo a surgical procedure in Rhode Island, you should take the time to gather as much information as possible ahead of time. Being fully informed about all aspects of your surgery is an important step in ensuring your own safety before, during and after the surgery. WebMD recommends that you ask your doctor several key questions.
