The negligence of medical staff members and lack of appropriate care causes injuries to many patients.

Hospital errors involving medication caused woman's death

Mistakes can happen at hospitals for a number of reasons. Regardless of the reason for them, hospital errors can lead to injuries and death for patients. Illinois residents who have suffered from any type of medical error may be interested in the story of an out-of-state woman who recently died after being given the wrong medication.

Woman sues doctor for surgical errors after appendectomy

Surgery is an event about which most Illinois residents are nervous. Some fear anesthesia, some fear the procedure and some fear being the victim of surgical errors. Luckily most surgeries are free of problems, meaning most fears are unfounded; however, occasionally surgical errors do occur. In one such case, a trial is underway in another state involving a doctor who is being sued for failing to completely remove a woman's appendix.

Even with medical advances, surgical errors still occur

In recent history, advances in medical techniques and equipment have given Illinois patients the chance to survive injuries and illnesses that would have either been debilitating or fatal in the past. Even so, surgical procedures still need to be attended by physicians, nurses and other medical personnel. Adding the human element can result in surgical errors that leave patients physically and emotionally scarred -- if they survive at all.
