Will Your Hospital Admit A Medical Mistake?

Sadly, patients cannot always count on hospitals and healthcare providers to do the right thing. If medical malpractice happens and a loved one is seriously injured or killed, we expect hospitals and our healthcare providers to admit fault and take accountability for what happened. But will they?

We are thankful to have been able to contribute to this effort to provide lunches to local area medical professionals that work so hard to care for those impacted by this terrible illness.

[05/06/20]   Residents of Western Pennsylvania are fortunate to have access to some of the best doctors and nurses in the nation. However, a recent national survey which measures preventable injuries and illnesses suggests several area hospitals, including two of the region’s largest, fall short of expectations when it comes to patient safety. The Spring 2020 survey results were released on April 30, 2020. Nearly every hospital in the Western Pennsylvania region received an “A” or “B” grade. Two hospitals in the region received a “C”.

[09/17/19]   10 years after HPV vaccine implementation, studies show a dramatic reduction in the instances precursors to cervical cancer in a wide range group of women from 13-29 years of age. When a majority of population has been immunized, the virus is not able to propagate and be transmitted to the unvaccinated portion of the population. We are hopeful that this information is indicative of a soon to be steady decline in instances of death caused by preventable cervical cancer.

Studies Show The Benefits of HPV Vaccination Over the Past Five Years

We have written about the benefits of HPV vaccination in the past. Recent studies show compelling correlation between increased vaccinations and decreased cases of HPV in adolescents and young adults. Between 2013 and 2017, the rate of vaccination in adolescence has increased 5% each year. The prevalence of HPV among girls age 13-19 decreased by 83%.

The study, funded by the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, reviewed 55,377 closed medical malpractice claims filed from 2006 to
2015 and identified 11,592 that alleged diagnostic errors. Lead researcher David Newman-Toker, a neurology professor at Johns Hopkins
University discusses why is important in future for the medical community to focus on the causes of diagnostic error. Since the majority of
inpatient admissions begin in the Emergency Dept any medical facility can can make a major impact in reducing needless death and disability
by focusing on such errors. Two research papers released in the past several weeks both point to the significance of diagnostic errors as a source of medical malpractice claims. A
