San Jose Medical Malpractice Lawyers
A 16 year old girl was hospitalized with severe abdominal pain. The doctor correctly diagnosed gall stones and began a conservative treatment to dissolve them. A morphine drip was ordered to alleviate the pain. Everything was done by the book — until a staff nurse misread the dosage and gave the patient 20 milligrams instead of 2 milligrams of morphine. Overmedication deprived the girl's brain of oxygen, causing an anoxic brain injury. Medical malpractice transformed her once-promising future into a life limited by permanent brain damage.
Medical malpractice is responsible for as many as 195,000 deaths in U.S. hospitals every year, according to a study by HealthGrades, Inc. That's more than diabetes, pneumonia, Alzheimer's disease, and renal disease.
