According to the HealthGrades Patient Safety in American Hospitals study, some 100,000 people die of potentially preventable, in-hospital medical errors in the United States every year. These numbers illustrate clearly the real danger posed by medical malpractice. At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, we work with top experts in the fields of medicine to establish what the standard of care is, whether or not it was met by the defendant, and whether or not this failure to abide by the industry standard of practice resulted in the plaintiff's injury. Common breaches of the accepted industry standard include: Misdiagnosis Failure to Diagnose Failure to Rescue Surgical Error Medication Error Post-operative Care Failure Specific examples may include anesthesia complications, leaving a foreign object inside the body, infection, and accidental punctures. Of the patients who experience these patient safety events, there is a one-in-ten chance of death, according to the findings by HealthGrades. Medical professionals have a duty to provide medical treatment that meets or exceeds the industry standard of care, and such incidences of patient safety events are simply unacceptable.
