A fast track to tragedy: the FDA's approval of the morcellator

A power morcellator is a surgical device that allows surgeons to cut up abdominal tissue into small pieces so that it can be removed through a small incision. It was originally designed to be used laparoscopically to minimize incision size and postop pain. Since 1995, it has been used primarily by gynecologists to remove uterine fibroids, or benign growths within the uterus. It is also used to perform hysterectomies or removal of the entire uterus. In fact, 50,000 to 125,000 hysterectomies were performed each year using a power morcellator. While this procedure was convenient and reduced recovery time, the convenience came at a fatal cost to many women.

Nurses must be held to a high standard for patient care

Nurses provide a variety of aspects of care for patients in doctors' offices, emergency rooms, and hospitals. These nurses are often the first people to encounter a patient, and they provide vital information to the doctor regarding the patient's current medical state. Have you ever considered how devastating it could be if a nurse made an error while caring for you?

Can a truck accident lead to amnesia for the victims?

Truck accidents can cause a variety of injuries. Some of the injuries aren't visible to the naked eye. In some cases, a person who is involved in a truck accident, especially if the accident is especially gruesome, the person might suffer from dissociative amnesia. This type of amnesia varies from the amnestic syndrome, which is the amnesia that leads to the global memory loss that is commonly seen in movies.

Over-the-counter and prescription medication errors are harmful

Medication errors are more common than what people might think. These errors can be caused by a variety of reasons, such as confusing dosages and confusing drugs that have similar names. Medication errors can also be caused by poor communication, poor handwriting on a written prescription or poor drug packaging. Regardless of the underlying cause of the medication error, these errors can be very harmful. The harm isn't limited only to instances involving prescription drugs. Over-the-counter drugs can also harm patients.

Woman practicing midwifery without certification guilty

If you gave birth to a child at home who then passed away or if you were injured badly while giving birth, then you may understand what the mother in this case is going through. After a failed home birth, her midwife has now pleaded guilty to the murder of an unborn child among other charges. If your home birth goes wrong, is your midwife to blame? In this case and for this woman, she may have been.

Structured settlements might provide you with a secure future

Seeking compensation for injuries suffered during a truck accident doesn't always mean that you will have to go to through a trial. In fact, many personal injury lawsuits are settled before the case makes it to trial. Some of the cases that are settled are settled with a structured settlement.
