How you can avoid doctor errors

When you think about medical malpractice in Aikin and Orangeburg counties, one of the first things that may run through your mind is doctor errors. Many good doctors make mistakes that cost their patients dearly. With this in mind, you may feel alarmed and overwhelmed at the thought of making an appointment.

Do you have a medical malpractice case?

When you go to any physician, you expect a certain level of care so you may get well in peace. In fact, by law, physicians must perform at a professional level in accordance with their occupation. Unfortunately, not all caretakers uphold those laws.

Why do police officers use excessive force?

Police officers are often lauded as heroes and protectors of their communities. In most cases, such characterizations are accurate, but in some, it could not be further from the truth. South Carolina has certainly seen this to be true. According to The Post and Courier, an officer was fired last year for using excessive force. It is worth questioning: why do police officers use excessive force?

Avoiding pharmacy errors

One-third of adults in the United States take five or more medications. The definition of adverse drug events includes any harms a patient experiences as a result of taking medication. Although ADEs account for only about 100,000 hospitalizations each year, they are still one of the most common inpatient errors, affecting about 5 percent of patients in hospitals. According to the Patient Safety Network, not every ADE is an error, nor does it indicate poor quality of care. However, when there is an actual error, it is generally preventable.
