5 Common Conditions Doctors Often Miss

ehr-1476525_640.pngSome conditions have such vague or variable symptoms that doctors often miss them because they fail to run the right tests or don't take the time to investigate their patients' medical histories. Failure to adequately assess a patient's health condition can result in unnecessary discomfort, prolonged healing, and death. Physicians who negligently care for their patients can be held liable for the damage they cause to a patient's health and their quality of life.

As the Weather Heats Up, Watch for Water Park Dangers

waterslide-398249_640.jpgInjuries from waterslides and other hazards in water parks are common and can occur even in closely monitored facilities. Each year, thousands of people suffer injuries sustained in public water parks. Common injuries include scrapes and bruises, broken bones, and spinal cord damage. Waterslides have the potential to cause life-changing and even deadly injuries.

When Pregnant Women Are Turned Away

hospital-1636334_640.jpgThe Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) requires hospitals to provide birthing services to women in active labor. The law considers this a medical emergency and hospitals that deny services or deliberately deliver substandard care are committing a serious violation. It is a common, and growing problem as an increasing number of hospitals are turning away patients in desperate need of emergency medical service. When this happens, they violate their duty of care to patients and can face significant civil liability for their refusal of service.
