Could time of day have an impact on surgical error?

Medical institutions, including surgical centers, are frequently reviewing their methods and histories to better understand why complications occur. Sometimes, people are harmed during a surgery due to the failure of a surgeon, whether the individual is fatigued, ill-prepared or negligent in some other way. A surgical error can lead to serious problems for a patient, potentially causing greater disability or even death. Individuals in Rhode Island may be interested to learn about recent published research that shows that the time of a surgery can affect complications due to surgery. 

Failure to diagnose embolism results in man's death

Diseases typically present with a specific set of signs and symptoms that physicians are trained to recognize. Recently, when a man showed signs of pulmonary embolism after a surgery, the physician's failure to diagnose his condition led to an unfortunate, untimely demise. His family took the case to court and won. Individuals in Rhode Island may benefit from learning about his case by becoming more aware of the signs and symptoms of embolism. Any family similarly affected will also benefit by learning about their options for getting justice after medical malpractice.
