The difference in Erb’s palsy and Klumpke’s palsy

Any expectant mother hopes their newborn is born without defect or injury. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Two of the most common injuries in South Carolina are Erb’s palsy and Klumpke’s palsy. While these two injuries are similar, they do have their differences.

Can a doctor’s unethical behavior be medical malpractice?

Most people associate the term “medical malpractice” with something that physically injures the patient during the course of treatment, such as a botched surgical procedure, a prescription filled in error, or a misdiagnosis. In a recent post we discussed medical malpractice that occurs outside a hospital setting. But what about a doctor’s behavior that has nothing to do with the physiological aspects of the treatment?

Medical malpractice does not always happen at hospitals

Surgical errors. Misdiagnoses. Delayed treatments. When you think about the topic of medical malpractice, these may be the things that come to mind: major medical mistakes on the part of doctors, surgeons and nurses, usually in a hospital setting. But from our perspective at Furr & Henshaw, medical malpractice is not confined to any particular location or to specific medical professionals. By being willing to step back and look at the broader scope of the medical profession, it becomes possible to see that there are more ways to become a victim of a health care error than the commonly thought-of ones.
