Wrong medications can lead to serious injury

Medication errors are often serious because a dosage mistake or the wrong drug can cause injuries or even fatal results. A negligent physician who does not check for allergies, or a pharmacist who fails to read the doctor's handwriting properly on the prescription note could be found liable for injuries sustained by a patient.

Defensive medicine: who does it help, if anybody?

A diagnosis and treatment technique well-known to doctors is to put a patient through multiple forms of tests for various injuries, illnesses and conditions even when the physician is already fairly sure about what ails the patient. This practice is colloquially referred to as "defensive medicine."

Understanding vacuum extraction birth injuries

Vacuum extraction is a form of intervention used by physicians during childbirth in situations where the labor and delivery has stalled. It is used to help pull and guide the baby out of the birth canal. This is done with the use of a vacuum extractor device which consists of either a soft or hard cup attached to a vacuum pump. The cup is attached to the baby's head and used to pull at the same time the mother pushes during contractions.
