Medical Record Mismanagement
When you visit a doctor or another medical professional, you trust that he or she will keep accurate records of your visit and past medical history. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and when mistakes subsequently occur, the result can be disastrous.
At the law firm of Furr & Henshaw, our attorneys hold medical professionals accountable for mistakes resulting from inaccurate medical records. We work closely with medical professionals and other experts to help you prove liability and get the financial compensation that you deserve. With an office in Myrtle Beach , we have more than 40 years of experience helping families in South Carolina pursue justice when any form of medical malpractice has taken place.
Protect Yourself Against Inaccurate Medical Information
There are certain steps that you can take to help ensure that your medical history is accurate and kept up to date. You should always request a copy of medical records following any visit to the doctor, as well as copies of any tests, lab reports and other information that was collected as part of your visit. If you see any mistakes, it is important to correct them and inform your medical provider of the mistake.
Doctors are often busy and may not dictate your record until the end of the day based on minimal notes they have taken. However, this does not excuse cases of medical malpractice. Taking proactive steps to ensure the accuracy of medical reporting can help ensure that your physician does not avoid liability for medical negligence.
