• Malpractice in the 21st Century

    Posted on December 18th, 2009 admin No comments

    Malpractice mistakes have partially driven the medical profession to move towards electronic medical records. Programs have been designed to spot conflicting medications, unusual doses, and track the history of medicine changes. Electronic records can clear up problems at pharmacies such as illegible prescriptions. Electronic records are also meant to be more accessible to other doctors and readily available. These are good intentions but when it comes to the decision making process a doctor uses to diagnose and treat patients, electronic records don’t help.

    When a physician misdiagnoses your condition, valuable treatment time is lost. This delay can cause organs to fail, cancer to spread, and more pain and suffering.
