Insurance Coverage & Medical Care at Hospitals

Hospitals are places of business. Whether they are for-profit or not-for-profit, they must maintain a bottom line in order to keep their doors open. Insurance companies contribute to the majority of the income at a hospital. Your insurance plan should have absolutely nothing to do with what kind of treatment you are given. However, this can sometimes dictate the kind of care a patient receives.

Our Baltimore hospital error lawyers investigate and litigate cases involving:

  • Wrongful discharge from a hospital
  • Emergency room errors and malpractice
  • Delayed stroke or heart attack diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Misdiagnosis of an illness or injury
  • Surgical errors
  • Post-operation infections and illness
  • Lack of informed consent
  • Birth injuries and obstetrical malpractice
  • Negligent hiring practices
  • Overworked medical professionals and understaffed hospitals
  • Nurse errors and malpractice

How Common are Surgical Errors?

When it comes to surgical procedures, you often have no choice but to trust your physician. While you may feel nervous going into the operation, the fact that the doctor may make a life-threatening mistake might never cross your mind. The truth is that surgical errors are made across the country every day. No state, even Maryland, is immune from this danger. Amednews.com details what you need to know about the risks of surgical errors.

First, you cannot judge a doctor’s proficiency on his or her age or experience. Between 20 and 36 percent of mistakes occurred in each age group of surgeons, with the exception being a smaller number of errors made by surgeons over age 60, a group that also includes fewer physicians.

Some states have reported a rise in surgical errors every year. While efforts are continually being made to reduce the number of mistakes, these continue to occur. Common reasons for errors include assistants who are too scared to speak up, inattention, improper marking of surgical sites and communication lapses. Around 40 mistakes involving needles, sponges, and other items and 40 surgeries of the wrong site happen each week.

Since approximately 50 million surgeries are done every week, the likelihood of a surgical error happening to you is one in 12,248. While these mistakes are rare, they can also be very serious and even deadly. Researchers are working to bring light to this problem and search for a solution. This information is meant to educate and should not be taken as medical or legal advice.

How Hospital Errors Occur

Some hospitals may choose to cut corners on staffing in order to increase profits. This leads to tasks being performed by unqualified or under-qualified nurses, doctors, surgeons, or other professionals. If one is not qualified to complete a task, the margin of error exponentially increases. Errors also occur when staff members and medical professionals are overworked and fatigued.

If you think you have been injured due to a Maryland hospital error or medical mistake, do not hesitate to contact our firm. Our Baltimore hospital error attorneys will carefully examine the circumstances surrounding your injury and determine liability, after which point we will assertively advocate for your right to fair compensation. We understand how frightening this may be for you, so we will give you the information and support you need to make educated decisions about your future while you focus on getting well.
