Surgical site infections due to doctor negligence

Today, advanced surgical technologies allow doctors and surgeons in Cranston to perform interventions that were once believed to have  been impossible. When prepping for surgical procedures, many patients may take the view that their upcoming procedures are routine and without risks. However, it should be remembered that even though today’s surgeries are typically performed by skilled professionals in sterile environments using state-of-the-art equipment, the threat of surgical complications still remains. One such threat is the risk of acquiring a surgical site infection.

VA faces multiple medical malpractice lawsuits across the U.S.

The veterans returning home to Providence after fighting for the United States are supposed to enjoy the benefit of world-class health care for the remainder of their lives. Sadly, recent news has begun to raise questions about the quality of care that America’s veterans are receiving.

We all have a right to quality medical care regardless of our station in life or whether we are homeless in Rhode Island or elsewhere. When you or a loved one go to an emergency room for diagnosis and treatment of a medical condition, you have a right to expect to be treated with dignity and respect and for your medical symptoms to heard. That was not the case for one woman who arrived at a health center only to be arrested for refusing to leave the facility until her severe pain was treated.

Taking Charge of Your Health Care in Rhode Island

When it comes to your health, you should not take any chances. In order to make the best decisions, you need to have all the information available; but nowadays, with the changes in modern medicine, we are often left waiting for doctor's offices to call us when we should be calling them. Waiting for test results can be a dangerous game.
