medical malpractice errors, Chicago personal injury lawyerAccording to a recent study, medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Many can be attributed to hospital errors, which can make them immediate and especially critical. However, medical errors with fatal or life-altering consequences do not just occur in hospitals; they can happen in doctor’s offices and clinics as well. Wherever the error happens, the mistakes are often the same, and even the best of doctors can make them.

IV solution recall, Chicago product liability lawyers, personal injuryIntravenous (IV) solutions are intended to hydrate or rehydrate patients while under the care of a physician, surgeon, or other applicable healthcare professional. Administration of the solution is handled by licensed professionals, and the patient has no say or knowledge regarding any potential adverse events from a contaminated bag.

For many years physicians in training, called residents, worked brutally long shifts, barely sleeping over the course of days.  As the workhorses of medical care in hospitals, this justifiably led to concerns over errors due to the dangerous combination of inexperience and sleep deprivation.  This resulted in rule changes limiting residents to no more than 28 straight hours at the hospital, and 14 hours off after working a 24 hour shift.  However, a study in this week’s New England Journal of Medicine has concluded that the reduced resident hours have not impacted patient safety, and is therefore recommending returning to the brutally long shifts of the past.  Groups such as the American Medical Student Association are opposing such a rollback, pointing to the “overwhelming” evidence of the dangers of sleep deprivation.  In the middle of all of this are hospital patients who expect – and pay for – medical professionals to be at their best.

licorice coughing syrup, Chicago pharmaceutical litigation lawyerCough syrup can contain a myriad of ingredients to help alleviate pain, cough, or general discomfort; morphine is not typically one of those ingredients, but it was found in Ma Ying Long Pharmaceutical Group’s over-the-counter Licorice Coughing Liquid. Even more concerning is that the ingredient was never listed on the product’s packaging. As such, the retailer in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is recalling the drug.
