Administrative Errors and Medical Malpractice

When we become ill or suffer a serious injury, most of us lack the training, knowledge, and expertise to tend to our own medical needs. As a result, we must wholly place our faith in the skills of doctors and the other healthcare professionals who will be involved at the various stages of the diagnosis and treatment of whatever ails us. Unfortunately, for hundreds of thousands each year this trust is betrayed by medical malpractice. Many of these occurrences can be attributed to administrative errors that could have been prevented through the exercise of greater caution.

If you have been the victim of a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist’s negligence, then it may be appropriate to consider filing a civil lawsuit to recover financial compensation for the harm that resulted. Let us help you understand and protect your legal rights. Contact the Des Moines medical malpractice lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at (515) 705-0233.

The Importance of Attention to Detail

In the modern healthcare system, there is virtually nothing that is as simple as a direct interaction between a patient and his or her doctor. The actual time that a patient spends with a physician is likely to be minimal as the emphasis is placed on patient quantity rather than the quality of the evaluation, and administrative paperwork is often completed and pushed through the system as quickly as possible. This environment heightens the risk of preventable errors, some of which can have devastating health consequences. These may include:

  • Wrong-patient surgery
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Prescription dosage errors
  • Incorrect medications
  • Patient abandonment

It is utterly shameful that anyone should have to suffer negative health effects simply because a healthcare professional failed to exercise a proper degree of attention. Contact the Des Moines personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at (515) 705-0233.
