Failures in communication and informed consent.

Before a patient receives any treatment, it’s important his doctors explain options thoroughly and in a manner the patient understands. Likewise, the doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other hospital staff must all fully understand and agree upon a course of action.

Failure to consider or obtain a patient’s full medical history.

To make an educated diagnosis and treatment plan, the doctor and her team must fully acknowledge and consider a patient’s medical history. Without it, mistakes can lead to injury and medical malpractice claims.

Monitoring errors.

After surgery or during another crucial point of recovery, nurses should carefully monitor patients, and doctors should carefully monitor subordinates to ensure proper care.

Birth injuries.

Improper use of surgical tools and drug errors can all lead to a birth injury. If this happens, infants may deal with complications such as brain damage and paralysis.
