Louisville Medical Malpractice / Medication Error Attorneys
When a doctor writes a prescription the patient believes that it has been chosen carefully. He assumes that the doctor has taken into account every bit of medical history, has prescribed the correct dosage and that it will not react badly with other medications. However, this is not always the case. Frequently the prescription is not appropriate and annually 1.5 million people suffer as a result. There are many causes of medication errors. Sometimes, the prescription is written sloppily or a similarly named prescription is given instead of the intended medication. Often times the pharmacy incorrectly fills the prescription. In many cases the personal injuries caused by medication errors are severe including brain damage and even wrongful death.
Many surgeries require general anesthesia. When an error is made in administering anesthesia the consequences can be devastating. Most errors arise from one of the following factors: the technique used to apply the anesthesia is incorrect, the amount used is inappropriate, or the monitoring of the patient is inadequate. The anesthesiologist is responsible for the well being of the patient during surgery and any errors can lead to lifelong impairment or death. Some of the more severe complications associated with general anesthesia are brain damage or death.
