If you ask most people what symptoms they associate with heart conditions, they might tell you chest pain, high blood pressure, or labored breathing. While those may be some signs that a heart attack is imminent, those three manifestations that your body is in distress are far from a comprehensive listing of symptoms someone may experience if they have cardiovascular disease or if a cardiac arrest is about to set in. 

Heart disease is one of the most common yet also misdiagnosed conditions women may develop. Cardiovascular disease, a precursor to a heart attack, trumps cancer, diabetes, and respiratory illness as the leading killer of United States women. This chronic illness claims approximately 333,000 lives annually.

What Are Never Events and Why Do They Occur

Doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other medical professionals are supposed to be experts in their particular areas of study. We should feel comfortable when we seek out medical care, confident in the fact that we will be treated and cared for appropriately. This is far too often not the case, though.

The negligent and reckless actions of certain health care providers can lead to so-called “never events.” The occurrence of a never event during the course of your medical treatment is never acceptable and may even warrant pursuing a medical malpractice claim to address the full scope of your damages. At Golden Law Office, we can advise you of your options.

Much like any professional in their field, you expect your doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and any other medical team members to do everything reasonably within their command to ensure you get the best possible care.

In the case of physicians, this means that you should receive a timely and accurate diagnosis and be clearly advised of treatment options available to you. It also means that you should expect a nurse assisting a surgeon to notify them of changes in vitals and if it appears surgical tools aren’t accounted for. Nurses also have an obligation to administer medication per the doctor’s instructions.

When we go to the doctor, we expect to be treated for our ailments regardless of who we are. It’s in the medical oath that doctors are unbiased about who they care for. So when doctors are biased, not only is it physically harmful to the patient, but it can also take an emotional toll on them.

In Lexington, our population is full of people from different races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds who all deserve to receive the same level of medical care. At Golden Law Office, we believe that every patient deserves the best care. If you received medical treatment that was subpar and caused you harm, a medical malpractice lawyer from our firm can help you recover compensation for the damages that you endured from improper care.

Undergoing a surgery of any kind is bound to be stressful, but if everything goes as planned you’ll recover and be able to return to your everyday tasks. Unfortunately, recovery is often upended when surgeons act negligently. One of the more common acts of negligence we see involves surgical instruments getting left inside patients. When this happens, it’s possible additional procedures will be needed to remove the equipment, which can significantly lengthen the recovery process and increase medical bills.

When you aren’t feeling well, you go to the doctor to get answers and recommendations. So what happens if your doctor says you’re fine, but you still feel sick? If you start feeling worse even though your doctor claimed you were healthy, then you could have a medical malpractice suit for a missed diagnosis on your hands. You trust your doctor to accurately diagnose you, so when they don’t, the results could be deadly.

You may have heard the terms “negligence” and “malpractice” used interchangeably, but there are clear differences between the two legally. If you’re pursuing a personal injury claim, it’s important to understand the difference between the terms, as your case may proceed differently depending on the circumstances of your accident.

In general, negligence involves a person’s failure to exercise care in a way that a reasonable person would have done in a similar situation. The majority of personal injury claims revolve around this idea. Malpractice, however, is a type of negligence that specifically relates to licensed professionals who fail to provide services that meet the required standard of care. Most personal injury claims revolving around malpractice are the result of a negligent doctor.
