Professional Negligence By Doctors And Hospitals Is Unacceptable

Doctors and nurses are well-educated and well-meaning, but not infallible. Similarly, hospitals exist to treat the sick and injured but can have policies and procedures that are substandard. Mistakes can happen in diagnoses, improper charting, surgery or any other myriad of circumstances. It oftentimes only takes a single mistake in a daisy chain of events to lead to suffering.

If you believe that you or a loved one has been harmed because of the negligence of your professional care provider, the attorneys at Burnett Law, P.A., can help. Our attorneys have experience in medical malpractice cases and are prepared, if necessary, to take your case before a jury.

The Most Common Medical Errors That Put Patients In Danger

Mistakes can happen in diagnoses, improper charting, surgery or any other myriad of circumstances. Here are some of the most common ways negligent doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists and other health care professionals expose their patients to harm:

  • Misdiagnosing the patient with a condition they do not have
  • Failing to keep exam rooms, hospital rooms and operating rooms sanitary
  • Operating on the wrong body part, or leaving a surgical tool inside the patient’s body
  • Prescribing the wrong medication, or prescribing an inappropriate dose
  • Using too much or too little anesthesia during surgery

These types of incidents can cause the patient’s death. If the patient survives, they can be disabled for life or face years of pain and limitation.
