Tying transitions of care to doctor errors

Every year, countless people in Providence County and throughout the rest of the U.S. suffer from mistakes made by doctors, surgeons, and other health care providers. While it should be remembered that health care providers are only human, many of these errors are the result of simple inaction or negligence. A report released by the Office of the Inspector General in 2010 showed that of the adverse events included in their study, 44 percent were preventable.

Surgeon faces over 260 medical malpractice lawsuits

Nearly all healthcare providers in Providence take their charge of caring for their patient’s very seriously. A medical malpractice lawsuit isn’t meant to be an indictment on a doctor’s character; rather, most medical malpractice cases center around a doctor or other healthcare provider inadvertently making a medical error that lead to a patient’s injury or death. Yet every so often, there comes a doctor who uses the trust associated with his or her position to abuse both the healthcare system and the patients that he or she treats.
