Signs, symptoms and preventability of strokes

Most Massachusetts residents either know someone who has had a stroke or know someone with a family member that has had a stroke. When not promptly identified or treated, a stroke can be extremely debilitating. However, theĀ American Stroke Association asserts that as many as 80 percent of all strokes are preventable with proper medical monitoring and interventions.

Mistaken identity leads to erroneous organ removal

While Massachusetts residents deserve the right to feel safe in the care provided by their medical professionals, the realities of life show that sometimes such feelings of safety are not warranted. A recent report from the Harvard Business Review suggests that as many as 200,000 people in the United States die every year from surgically related issues. These may arise during operations or after operations but either way, the number is alarming.

What symptoms may signal a pregnancy complication?

Every pregnancy is different. Expectant women in Massachusetts have many things to learn about and pay attention to while carrying their babies. Knowing what is normal and when action is needed can be difficult but that is part of what an obstetrician is supposed to help with. However, if you are pregnant, you should educate yourself about some potential warning signs so that you can advocate for yourself and your baby.

Surgical errors more prevalent than originally thought

More and more, patients today are learning that they need to be proactively involved in their health care. Massachusetts residents should always remember they have the right to ask questions and be informed about their care. While things like second opinions may help to prevent some problems, there are times when patients remain more vulnerable to medical errors During and after surgeries are prime examples of these times.
