The death of a child in hospital is something that is dreaded by all hospital staff, yet it is a tragedy that occurred at Seattle Children's Hospital in February 2020.

A 5-month-old baby named Elizabeth Vera Hutt died after contracting a mold infection from the hospital. She was born in August 2019 with a congenital heart condition and had to undergo many surgeries. What her parents didn't know was that the hospital had closed four operating rooms on 18 May 2019 and another ten on 24 May 2019 after Aspergillus – a type of mold – was found during a routine air check. While the mold is relatively harmless to the ordinary person, it can be deadly if the spores take root in people with fragile immune systems.

According to estimates, 1,735,350 new cancer cases were diagnosed in 2018 in the US, and 609,640 people succumbed to the disease. Cancer has an average five-year survival rate of nearly 60 percent, but that differs significantly depending on the form of cancer. In general, the chances of survival are higher if the cancer is diagnosed and treated early. 

Unreasonable delays in cancer diagnosis are grounds for a medical malpractice claim. But malpractice cases are complex, and there are various roadblocks that you need to identify and overcome to be able to create a solid case for damages.

According to researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, MD, diagnostic mistakes are the most frequent, and most serious, medical error that occurs, and the one which leads to the most medical malpractice lawsuits.

There aren’t exact values as to how many patients are affected, but it‘s estimated that between 40,000 and 80,000 deaths happen in United States hospitals each year. Because of these high values, the Johns Hopkins researchers studied over 11,000 cases from a U.S. medical malpractice claims database to understand which conditions doctors are most likely to misdiagnose.

If you have been following the buzz around world news, then you are sure to have heard of the Coronavirus outbreak of 2020. In fact, discussions on this dreaded virus (aptly nicknamed by some as the “demon virus”) have taken the center-stage all across the globe.

While the danger of this highly contagious virus becoming a pandemic (a global epidemic) is real, the situation can improve with proper awareness and by taking the right precautions.

In a recent article published on Nurse Journal, it was revealed that nursing negligence medical malpractice lawsuits and settlements are low in comparison to physicians, which many think is due to the positive and personal relationships that nurses have with their patients.

Certain areas of healthcare are more prone to medical malpractice lawsuits than others. This means that nurses that work within the anesthesia, obstetrics, pediatrics, and neonatology units are more at risk of getting sued than their colleagues who don’t work in these areas.

In 2013, a 17-year old girl named Faith DeGrand filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the Detroit Medical Center Children's Hospital of Michigan for a botched spinal surgery that left her paralyzed from the neck down.

Only 10-years old at the time, Faith required spinal surgery for her scoliosis. Unfortunately, what she got instead was a surgical error that caused her intense pain and further injury.

Every year, Medscape conducts its Malpractice Premium Report in the United States of America. The results from 2019 are officially in, and more than 4,300 physicians responded to the survey to give insights regarding how much they pay to protect themselves in the event of a medical malpractice lawsuit and how they feel about those premiums.

According to the report, nearly all physicians (94%) have medical malpractice coverage, and specialists pay significantly more ($21K) than primary care physicians ($12K) in annual malpractice premiums. In terms of specialists, OB/GYN and Women’s Health specialists pay the highest premiums ($46K), and psychiatric specialists pay the lowest premiums ($5K).

When pop artist Andy Warhol was 58-years old, he underwent a routine gallbladder surgery which made him so sick that he passed away prematurely less than 12 hours later.

In 1987, Warhol had this seemingly simple surgery, confident in his surgeon’s reassurances that there was no danger for him to concern himself over. However, it was later revealed after Warhol’s death that gallbladder surgery was, and still is, a major surgical procedure which is not routine, especially if the patient is as sick as Warhol was at the time of his surgery.

In 2012, a 48-year older man named Richard Shouldis informed his doctor that he was experiencing worsening symptoms of panic attacks, depression, fatigue, excessive worry, difficulty concentrating, and weight loss.

Richard was already taking several medications for anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbances, yet his doctor failed to recognize that his depressive and self-destructive state was getting progressively worse. In fact, Richard’s family revealed that he was so agitated and disturbed in the week leading up to his suicide that his doctor should have immediately sent him to a psychiatrist or the hospital.
