Hospitals are supposed to be places where people can trust professionals to make the right decisions fast. It is a place where a family member or friend should feel secure that their sick or injured loved one is taken care of properly and provided the appropriate treatment. Unfortunately, our medical malpractice attorneys in Honolulu at Kurzban, Kurzban, Tetzeli, and Pratt P.A. know the story all too well. A doctor didn’t look at the paperwork right, or a nurse administered the wrong dosage. It is an all too familiar story for us, but we are here to help right a wrong and fight for justice.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Our medical malpractice attorneys in Honolulu fight relentlessly for our clients because the end result forces medical staff to take a closer look at what they are doing. It forces hospitals to evaluate how they are running their shifts. Every lawsuit against medical staff is a wake-up call that there are no such things as happy accidents. The most common types of medical malpractices are:

  • Misdiagnosing a patient
  • Failure to diagnose a patient
  • Failure to treat a patient’s condition
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Prescription medication mistakes
  • Healthcare-acquired infections
  • Emergency room malpractice

Because of the increased stress of Covid-19 on our hospitals, it is important that patients, and loved ones of patients, stay vigilant to ensure that our medical staff is not making medical errors. Note that not all medical errors are from the doctor. Medical errors can be caused by hospital staff who admit patients, nurses or nurse assistants, emergency staff, psychologists on hand, and more. Many people are under the impression that only the serving doctor can be sued, but that is not the case. Our job as your attorney is to investigate the issue and find the people most responsible for what happened to your loved one.

How Do You Know

Because we have high respect for doctors and nurses, it is hard to believe that someone got something wrong. Most of us could barely pass an introductory biology course, so how could we know that there was an error. The short answer is the medical team should tell you if an error was made. Communication between doctor and patient should be very transparent and open. Even though the medical staff may not translate into plain English well what is needed, you should know if something has gone wrong.
