What Hospital Errors Can Result in Major Injuries for Maryland Patients?

By Alpert Schreyer on December 3, 2012

Hospital Error CausesHospital patients in Maryland are under medical care for a variety of reasons, both for emergencies and voluntary procedures, but they all come to improve their physical conditions. Unfortunately, many medical errors occur every year that can both cause new injuries and illness as well as worsen pre-existing conditions.

To keep yourself safe, or in the event an injury may have been caused by medical malpractice, it is important to be aware of these common but serious hospital errors.

  • Improper Medication: Staff may undermedicate or overmedicate a patient, or even provide a patient with the wrong medication. This may not only cause an injury or illness to not properly heal, but cause unexpected complications.
  • Surgical Errors: Often the subject of horror stories, a patient may undergo unneeded surgery, surgery on the wrong body part, suffer an infection from surgery, or suffer further injuries from some manner of poor surgical procedures.
  • Improper/Failed Diagnosis: Being treated properly requires that a condition be properly diagnosed in a timely manner. If a doctor does not diagnose a condition, or finds the condition to be something other than it actually is, all subsequent medical procedures can cause further injury while allowing the condition to worsen.
  • Poor Rehabilitation: After a medical procedure, many patients will need continued care and observation to ensure that they recover properly from their injuries. If not, they may never regain the capabilities they could have had had their condition not worsened.
