Complications in the delivery process a problem in the U.S.

Expectant mothers are experiencing problems during childbirth for a number of reasons. The Centers for Disease Control report that more than 135 expectant and new mothers every day are experiencing complications in the delivery process. Some of the problems can be attributed to maternal health factors, but for others, a delay and denial of common symptoms of complications by medical staff become an issue. Mothers in Rhode Island who have experienced similar issues may be interested in some of the data surrounding the trend. 

Surgical error associated with durotomy may be malpractice

An incision in the membrane surrounding the spinal cord could lead to problems for patients. Durotomy, as the incision is known, could arise from a surgical error and may result in cerebral spinal fluid leakage if not quickly resolved. Rhode Island residents may be interested to learn more about the study of 48 durotomy cases performed by researchers, which gives more details about the problem and the malpractice cases that followed.

Delayed post-surgical care results in large award for woman

A several hour delay was determined to be the cause of one woman's paralysis. The individual was seen at a hospital for a routine surgery, and later difficulty swallowing caused her to return to the hospital for post\-surgical care. Unfortunately, the care did not come soon enough and the woman was left severely disabled. Individuals in Rhode Island may take note of the woman's problems should they ever face a similar issue in the future. 

VA doctors accused of medical malpractice

The Department of Veterans Affairs was established to support veterans who have been harmed in performing their duty to protect and serve the citizens of the United States. Since veterans have sacrificed in the name of the greater good, many believe that the VA owes the best treatment for disease and injuries to these individuals. Unfortunately, a recent news investigation showed that the VA may be lax in hiring physicians with a history of medical malpractice. For veterans in Rhode Island, this situation can become very problematic.
