Medical mistakes lead to third-most deaths in Florida, elsewhere

Back in 2009, a pilot was said to be a hero when he landed his plane on the Hudson River, saving hundreds of lives. That pilot has now been speaking out again, focusing on safety in other areas, and he is using the idea of air travel to do it.

Medical mistakes could be reduced by family intervention

Many Florida family members believe that they should do their best to stay out of the way at hospitals and during the medical treatment of their loved ones. However, evidence may show that family members actually need to get as involved as possible in the medical care of their loved ones to prevent potential medical errors. One woman recalls that as her husband was receiving medical treatment, the staff members misplaced or forgot two orders of blood that her husband required in a case of medical negligence.

Misdiagnoses and Malpractice Data

Failure to diagnose a condition correctly is more common than operating on the wrong side of the body. In 2009, 583 cases were misdiagnosed and resulted in death or serious injuries. The problem is severe and was recently discussed at an international conference. Studies have shown that misdiagnoses stem from negligence and a flawed way of thinking, not because the illness is exotic or rare.
