South Carolina parents, birth injuries and medical malpractice

In South Carolina hospitals and hospitals all across the country, countless newborns suffer birth injuries. However, most of these injuries do not require treatment, and the injuries heal naturally. Unfortunately, some newborns are not so lucky, and their birth injuries result in lifelong physical or mental disabilities. For parents of these unlucky children, lawsuits for medical malpractice may be required to ensure their children have care for the rest of their lives.

Surgical Errors Can Come In Many Different Forms

When most people think of surgical errors, they think of surgeons operating on the wrong body part or accidentally clipping an artery. While these two errors are, unfortunately, fairly common, other types of surgical errors seem to be just as common in South Carolina ? including foreign body retention. What is foreign body retention?

Nursing home negligence is elder abuse

We see complaints made against hospitals regarding negligence in care and blatant medical malpractice. We put our trust in the medical profession to make us better, we do the same in nursing homes. So it is disconcerting to hear of nursing home residents suffering injuries. It's even worse to learn that one of own loved ones has been the victim of some form of abuse at the hands of negligent nursing home staff. What are some common areas of nursing home negligence that are seen in both hospitals and nursing homes?

What happens after I report nursing home abuse suspicions?

What should you expect after you report suspected abuse to Adult Protective Services and your state's Long-Term Care Ombudsman? If your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, both you and your loved one may be dealing with an entirely new and frightening experience.

The unbearable truths behind nursing home abuse

They brought us into this world. Their lives became focused around our own and equipping us with the very best tools to build a future and a joy-filled, secure life. That is why, as our parents age and are no longer able to care for themselves safely, it falls particularly hard on our shoulders to bear the responsibility of finding and providing for them suitable care. With the trend toward both women and men working full-time jobs, we trust because we must, that a nursing home will provide diligent and professional care. We hope it is even better care than that which we could provide personally.
