Woman sues hospital over surgical sponge

New York residents may have heard about a medical malpractice case that originated when a surgeon performed a hysterectomy on a woman at a hospital in Southern California in 2007. After experiencing problems shortly thereafter, she returned to the hospital, where her symptoms were dismissed as severe constipation. This was the first of several visits to the hospital over the next few years.

Large-scale clerical error may have harmed patients

It’s pretty easy to understand that there may be tragic consequences when a patient in need of medical attention is unable to see a doctor. Without any care or treatments, even conditions that would otherwise respond to medical treatments might take a serious turn.

Unable to make a diagnosis, doctors turn to DNA technology

Researchers have been sequencing DNA for years in an effort to identify pathogens. However, DNA analysis hasn’t been widely used to diagnose individual patients’ infections because of the time involved in sorting through DNA fragments that might number in the millions. Yet software is already being developed that can compare DNA fragments with databases of stored genetic sequences.

Easily accessible medical records may improve patient care

Have you ever asked yourself these questions: Can a lab test result be used as the sole basis for a diagnosis? Was a generally accepted test used to diagnose my illness? Does my diagnosis match my symptoms?
