Psychological effects of medical error

Nearly 100,000 deaths occur every year due to mistakes in hospitals or by healthcare workers. The problem is widespread, and the emotional toll it can take on victims exceptionally serious. The psychological effects of medical error affect more than just the patient, are all too often invisible and can tear families apart.

What is the doctor-patient confidentiality?

Doctor-patient confidentiality is very important. All patients should feel confident that their doctors will not share their private information with others. The right to confidentiality allows patients to be candid with doctors, and in exchange, the doctor can more accurately diagnose and treat the patients. When a doctor or health care provider breaches that confidentiality, a patient may have a medical malpractice claim.

When someone is discharged from the hospital, it is a day of relief for the patient and loved ones. Whatever caused the patient to be hospitalized in the first place is under control to the point that constant medical monitoring is no longer required. The last thing that a patient wants to think of is a return visit in the near future.
