Medical malpractice: Patients report injuries from device

After many women suffered medical problems from an intrauterine device, Congress passed a Medical Device Amendment Law in 1976 in hope to prevent medical devices from being used on patients without an appropriate approval process. The Food and Drug Administration became the government department that provided oversight and approval for medical devices. One representative of the FDA stated that as many as 12 devices or modifications to previous devices are approved on a daily basis. Residents in Massachusetts may be interested to learn that some patients are experiencing negative side effects and decreased quality of life following a device implant. One man in another state may have experienced medical malpractice after an implanted spinal-cord stimulator left him bedridden.

Massachusetts residents may be interested in one woman's recent medical malpractice lawsuit filed over a hospital's disregard of her DNR order following a cardiac arrest.

Medical malpractice: Woman's healthy kidney removed

The kidneys are one of the body's vital organs. They work to filter waste and regulate blood pressure in the human body.

A failure to diagnose an infection in a timely manner can result in sepsis, which is a serious condition that places a patient's life at risk. One woman in another state accused a physician and hospital of medical malpractice and the failure to inform her now deceased husband of the deadly infection from which he suffered.
