- Physical Therapists

Why Do Medical Errors Happen in Texas?
You’re likely used to trusting medical professionals. You expect them to analyze your symptoms, diagnose what’s wrong, and then start providing you with treatment so you can get healthy. Some of those reasons could be:
- Lack of Information. Sometimes, patients are transferred between facilities. When someone is changing the facility or another kind of care transfer is occurring, there needs to be updated and accurate information about their treatment so the new facility can treat them appropriately. If this isn’t in place, then they may treat the patient with outdated information.
- Poor Communication. Even if a patient is staying in one place, doctors and nurses have shifts. There could be a few people who are regularly in charge of a patient’s care. If they don’t communicate or update the patient’s chart, then medical errors could occur.
- Exhaustion. In some cases, an individual could be working multiple shifts. If they’re working while fatigued, they could make a mistake that puts the patient’s life in danger.
- Medical Equipment Failure. Equipment is necessary for procedures, monitoring a patient’s vitals, and sometimes specific equipment is necessary to help keep a patient alive. If a medical device fails or malfunctions, the patient could suffer injuries.
When these mistakes happen, patients may have injuries from not receiving oxygen or not getting the medication they need. This can result in extended hospital time, more care, and losing time to catch and treat an ailment early. These reasons are preventable and shouldn’t have happened. Your Dallas, TX medical malpractice lawyer will show that what happened was unacceptable and you have suffered preventable injuries because of the mistake.
