Family nets settlement of $4.75 million after failure to diagnose

Oregon citizens are extremely fortunate to have access to state-of-the-art medical care. When it comes to serious diseases such as cancer, timing is everything. An early diagnosis is the main factor in determining a patient's chances of survival. Because of this, the failure to diagnose a disease such as cancer can delay much-needed treatment and have fatal consequences for the patient. The family of a woman in another state recently received a substantial settlement after the woman lost her life due to a belated cancer diagnosis.

Amazing advancements have been made in the medical field. Patient care and safety have become a top priority in hospitals and medical facilities across the nation. Doctors and nurses in the state of Oregon are subjected to years of academic and on-the-job training, but this does not make them immune to errors. Unfortunately, mistakes continue to happen in the medical field at an alarming rate. An Oregon man recently filed lawsuit over claims that medical negligence left him with permanent injuries.

Patient suffers due to alleged nursing negligence

Nurses oversee the day-to-day care and well-being of their patients, and by doing so, they play one of the most vital roles in health care today. Nurses, like all medical professionals, have an obligation to treat patients with a certain standard of care. When this standard of care is not met, the patient is directly affected and ultimately suffers. In the state of Oregon and all across the country, when the patient suffers injury or death as a result of negligent care, nurses and other care providers can be held accountable. A patient in another state recently lost her life due to alleged nursing negligence and legal action is being pursued.

The tendency to make mistakes is a defining flaw of the human race. All mistakes have consequences, but when mistakes occur in the medical field, the consequences can be life altering. Most Oregon citizens are not aware that medical negligence is a leading cause of death and serious injury in the United States. When a patient is seriously injured or suffers unnecessarily at the hand of medical professionals, legal action can be taken. A man in another state was recently awarded over $2.5 million in damages after negligent care almost cost him his life.

However, mistakes happen in all walks of life, and the medical profession is no different.
