Cardiac catheterization and hospital negligence

Heart disease is a major health concern here in Illinois and across the United States. If it is suspected that a patient is suffering from heart disease or some other heart condition, a medical evaluation will be done to determine how well the heart is functioning. One of the tests that may be performed is called a cardiac catheterization. If this procedure is not performed correctly due to doctor and/or hospital negligence, the patient could suffer serious injury or even death.

Illinois residents go to emergency rooms when they are ill or injured in order to receive treatment. After being examined by a doctor, a course of treatment is often ordered.
