Your baby's first cry is followed by an important test

It is a familiar scene in movies and on TV shows; immediately after a baby is delivered, the doctor holds it by the legs and gives it a firm rap on the butt and crying ensues. However, in reality, crying is actually induced by simply stroking and massaging the baby's skin. But why make the baby cry at all? Isn't just being born harrowing enough? Well, as it turns out, doctors have a very good reason to make a baby cry.

Get the help you need after an OR burn injury

Each year, hundreds of thousands of individuals undergo surgical procedures. While the majority of these cases are successful and go without incident, some of them result in injury. One cause of significant injury in the OR is burns. If you or someone you know received a burn injury during a surgical procedure, it may be in your best interest to speak to an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

When triage fails

Chances are, at some point throughout your life, you have heard the term triage. Whether you suffered a serious injury or a minor fall, with one visit to the emergency room, you have been triaged. The term triage means to assign a degree of urgency to patients based on the severity of their injury or illness. Many times in a hospital setting, a triage nurse will evaluate you and make recommendations to the treating physician as to the severity of your condition. While this process is meant to safely and effectively speed the care given to the seriously injured or ill, it does not always work. When triage fails, it may be time to speak to an attorney.

My doctor didn't listen and now I'm hurt, what do I do?

Most of us have probably experienced a doctor's short attention span. Whether we are in the middle of explaining our symptoms or discussing our treatment options, it seems more often than not, doctors don't pay attention. Perhaps they feel they know better, or perhaps it's because time is money, but regardless of why doctors don't listen, their inattention is dangerous to patients.

Common prescriptions may be deadly medications

It is amazing to think that the most commonly prescribed medications are not necessarily the ones that Americans spend the most money on. In many cases, medications in the top 10 most commonly prescribed list, are inexpensive. However, no matter how cheap these commonly prescribed medications are, they are not worth the cost of a life.
