How Can you Minimize Your Risk of Suffering Medical Malpractice?
If you or a loved one is suffering due to medical malpractice, please share your story with us to discover how we may be able to help you.
Hello, I’m Esther Gallagher with the law firm of Lowenthal & Abrams. I am a medical doctor and a lawyer here to promote awareness of the dangers of medical malpractice and how you can be a better patient advocate for yourself or someone you love.
I’m sure you know by now that medical errors endanger all of us, especially those who need to stay in a hospital. What can you do to protect yourself while in a hospital?
First, try to learn as much as you can about your ailment. Be persistent in asking your doctors about all treatments.
Second, do as much research as you can.
Third, don’t be afraid to insist that all doctors and nurses wash their hands.
Fourth, know what medicines you are being given and if it is the correct dosage. A recent study documents that 7000 people die each year as a result of medication errors alone.
You would be amazed how following these simple steps can protect the health and life of someone you love.
Thank you, please help us share awareness.
