|Surgical Injury or Death: Surgical mistakes make up some of the most frequently reviewed potential medical malpractice cases. These can range from errors regarding the administration and monitoring of anesthesia, the surgery itself, and the inadvertent cutting or injuring of nerves, organs, or other vital body parts. They even encompass the post-surgical care and follow up.|
|Spinal Cord Injury or Death: Although the spinal cord is only 18 inches long, and is made up of tiny, delicate nerve cells, a spinal cord injury can be a traumatic and devastating injury resulting in a lifetime of pain, suffering and huge medical expenses.|
|Brain Damage Injury or Death: Many victims of brain injury suffer some type of permanent irreversible damage. It is reported that currently there are more than 5 million people in the United States who are permanently disabled due to the effects of a brain injury.|
|Birth Injury: A birth injury may occur when a physician does not react quickly and sufficiently to signals of a patient’s distress or when substandard care is provided during the pregnancy or birthing process. These factors may result in devastating effects on the mother and/or child. Lifelong paralysis, brain damage, and even death may occur if a doctor does not provide adequate medical care to the patient.|
|Cancer Misdiagnosis Injury or Death: Unfortunately many people receive false diagnoses of cancer and either undergo further and unnecessary diagnostic tests, or aggressive chemotherapy before the error is found. The emotional and physical impact of such an error can be catastrophic to a patient and his or her family.|
|Unexplained Injuries or Death: Any unexplained injury in a hospital or nursing home setting must by Florida law be investigated by the Administrator and be reported. If the hospital or nursing home is unable to give family members an adequate, uncontradictory explanation for how the injury occurred, they should seek legal representation to further investigate whether there was negligence or abuse.|
|Bedsore Injuries: Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, should simply not occur to a patient who is hospitalized. Hospitals have a duty to identify patients who are at risk for developing pressure ulcers and instituting an aggressive program to prevent skin breakdown. Bedsores account for 1115,000 deaths per year in the United States.|
|Slip & Fall Injuries: Some falls in nursing homes are unavoidable and are due to weakness or walking problems, however, many falls and fractures are the result of nursing home negligence, and include incorrect bed height, improperly maintained wheelchairs, improper transferring from bed to chair, and failure to properly supervise.|
|Elderly Abuse Injury: Whether you are an elder or caregiver, a professional or volunteer who deals with aging issues, or just looking for information related to Florida’s older residents, we hope this website proves to be a valuable tool for you.|
