Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, medical malpractice happens frequently across the country. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to deliver the degree of care a reasonable and prudent provider would give under similar circumstances, resulting in injury or death to the patient. A surgeon may operate on the wrong part of the body, or a nurse may make a serious medication error.

Pharmacy Error

Pharmacy error is a growing issue in this country and can result in serious illness, injury or even death to patients erroneously given the wrong medication. Today, most neighborhood drugstores are mega chains that serve as convenience stores more than as pharmacies. Pharmacies now exist in almost every grocery store and mega outlet imaginable, from WalMart to Target. The shortage of educated and qualified pharmacists often means that they are overworked and must rely on alternative help to meet customers’ needs.

If you or someone you love has suffered injury or death because of a wrongly filled prescription, please call Avera & Smith for help. We’ll find out if you got the prescription your doctor ordered, who filled the prescription and how the error occurred.

Failure to Diagnose

Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis encompass many different types of medical malpractice, including failure to properly diagnose cancer or another serious medical condition. These situations can often result in improper medical care, delayed treatment or no treatment at all, which can worsen the patient’s medical condition and/or prognosis. If this sounds like something that has happened to you or a loved one, call us today and we’ll get to the bottom of it.
