Lawsuit claims hospital failed in handling of patient's drug test

Most in Providence would assume that all lawsuits filed against hospitals involve negligent care that resulted in a patient’s injury. Yet one aspect of healthcare that’s often overlooked is patient rights. While doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are charged with treating their patients’ physical ailments, they are required at the same to respect patients’ rights to make all of the decisions involving their care. Providers open themselves up to accusations of medical negligence should this right not be recognized, even in cases where there is no physical harm to the patient.

Hearing loss due to doctor errors, woman claims

Modern society relies wholeheartedly on medical professionals to diagnose and properly treat ailments. From a list of symptoms, a Providence doctor is trained to piece together the health warning signs in order to be directed to the underlying source of the issue. When a doctor error occurs, for example when a physician fails to notice obvious indicators of a greater fundamental problem, the consequences can be damaging. Misdiagnosis or delayed treatment can lead to the spread of infections, a worsened condition that is difficult to treat and sometimes even an irreversible disability.
