Family receives $8 million settlement for birth injury

Expectant mothers in Pennsylvania who seek medical care and treatment when they experience potentially unusual or problematic symptoms during pregnancy should be able to trust that their health care providers will respond promptly and appropriately. When an unborn baby's life is involved, time can be of the essence and make a big difference in the outcome of a situation.

Electronic record systems might increase medical errors

Pennsylvania residents have good reason to be concerned about the safety of their medical care. Even what may seem like a minor mistake on the part of a doctor, nurse or other health care provider may have serious and lifelong consequences for patients. There are many types of medical mistakes and medication errors are one area in which big problems can develop quickly.

Cerebral palsy as a birth injury

Are you or your partner pregnant and expecting a baby in Pennsylvania? Have you had a child and maybe now are wondering why that baby has not met certain developmental milestones? These are just some of the situations in which you should make sure you are educated about some of the types of birth injuries that may occur if proper actions are not taken. Certainly you want to trust that your health care team can take care of moms and babies but the more patients know, the better because errors can and do happen.

Signs you may need a second opinion

When you see a doctor, whether for a routine check-up or a specific complaint, you tend to trust that professional's medical knowledge. However, doctors do make mistakes, and diagnostic or treatment errors can have a devastating impact on a person's life. Medical error is among the the leading causes of death in the U.S. Sometimes, you may feel uneasy but remain unsure as to whether you have identified a real red flag or are just nervous. In the following situations, follow your instincts and get a second opinion, just in case.

Distractions may be killing more pedestrians

Many Pennsylvania residents may be excited at the return of spring in part because getting out on foot is easier and more pleasant than during the dark, cold month of winter.
