Stroke Misdiagnosis: Impacts and Implications

A recent review published by the US Department of Health & Human Services revealed that 7.4 million patients are misdiagnosed each year during Emergency Room (ER) visits. The #1 misdiagnosed condition that causes serious related harm is stroke. While most people are familiar with the term stroke, very few are aware of how to recognize the symptoms of stroke or how serious the condition can be when treatment is delayed. Stroke is a medical condition that affects close to 800,000 Americans every year. If a hospital or ER does not correctly diagnose a stroke, their failure to act would be considered medical malpractice. What is a Stroke? There are two broad categories of stroke: (1) ischemic, and (2) hemorrhagic. An ischemic stroke occurs when the blood supply to parts of the brain is reduced or blocked by a blood clot or other particles, preventing the brain from receiving the necessary oxygen and nutrients from the blood. Alternatively, a hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain leaks blood or bursts. Hemorrhagic strokes are typically caused by high blood pressure. Sometimes a precursor to an ischemic stroke, is a history of transient ischemic attack(s) (TIA), which occur when blood...

Negligence at Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Centers

Treatment centers for substance abuse disorders are meant to be safe areas where patients can recover with the help of licensed professionals. An individual may spend days or months in a residential facility to receive the type of treatment that is best catered to his or her disorder. However, with over 14,500 specialized treatment facilities in the United States, it is alarming to discover how difficult it is to impress consistent regulations for each center. Without rules that can be regulated on a national or state level, facilities have more of an opportunity to get away with low quality care and negligence. If you, or someone you know, have been injured at a residential treatment center for a substance abuse disorder, contact a trusted attorney today if you suspect it was a result of negligence. WHAT IS A REASONABLE STANDARD OF CARE? One of the complicated aspects of proving treatment center neglect is being able to show there was an unreasonable standard of care provided. In order to do this, one would have to understand the definition of a reasonable standard of care. This standard varies from center to center, and the law only vaguely touches on this expectation. Additionally, the treatment facilities...
