Botched circumcision case in hands of jury

A botched circumcision case that involved an infant boy's losing part of his penis was headed to the jury for a decision after closing arguments. The incident which gave rise to this case happened, and the ensuing trial occurred, in another Georgia county not too far from Rome.

Some question judgment of Georgia's Medical Board

Like other licensed professionals in this state, physicians are expected to adhere to certain standards of behavior and competence. If they do not do so, then regulators with the state are supposed to take action against their licenses so their tendency to make medical errors cannot harm other patients.

Should I consider mediating my medical malpractice case?

For those who might not be familiar with the concept, mediation is a process that involves two parties who are in a dispute discuss their positions with the help of a neutral party who has training and experience with facilitating negotiations. Both sides are free to stop mediating at any time and do not have to enter an agreement. Moreover, the process is confidential, so what gets discussed in mediation will not be brought up in court.

Wrong-site surgery: more common than one might think

A type of medical malpractice that is a big newsmaker is what is commonly referred to as "wrong-site" surgery. More specifically, these types of medical mistakes are called WSPEs, so as to refer to the fact that wrong-site surgeries can also refer to surgical procedures done on the wrong patient and incorrect procedures done on the right patient.

Types of medication errors that doctors can make

Prescribing drugs to treat illnesses and other medical conditions is an important and serious business, which is why Georgia residents and people around the country entrust that task to doctors and other medical professionals who are trained and properly qualified to do so. Giving someone the wrong medicine, the wrong does of a medicine, or even a medicine that would be fine, but for a patient's drug allergy or the other medications that patient is taking, can all lead to a patient's experiencing serious and even severe medical complications. In the worst cases, patients may even die because of a medication error.

The importance of informed consent in med mal cases

As this blog has discussed previously, patients both in Georgia and across the country have the right to expect that their doctors will diagnose them correctly and promptly and will administer all surgeries and other treatments correctly. If a doctor fails in this obligation and injures a patient as a result, then the doctor can be held financially accountable via a medical malpractice case.
