How do I deal with doctors' mistakes in Georgia?

Something doesn't feel quite right around the site of a surgery, well after the wound should have healed. You wake up in a hospital bed and look down at your right side expected stitches, only to find they are on the left side. These are some of the situations that victims of medical malpractice can find themselves in during their most vulnerable moments.

Medical malpractice requires a smart response

Doctors save lives every day, and patients often owe their lives to the physicians and support staff who treat them in a time of need. This can make it especially shocking and disappointing when something goes wrong while a person is being treated by medical professionals.

What’s most important to you when choosing a doctor?

When it comes to receiving medical care, everyone has their own idea of what's most important. Above all else, you should be completely comfortable with every member of your medical team. This will put your mind at ease, allowing you to focus on your health and well-being.

Tracking surgical sponges is vital to patient health

Sometimes a patient will go to an Atlanta medical facility for a routine surgery and everything appears to go well. However, after several days of recovery, the patient notices that his or her pain is getting worse instead of better. This pain might even include fever. It could be a sign of a surgical souvenir — i.e., an object left in the patient's body during surgery.

‘Dancing doc’ accused of medical negligence during surgeries

A plastic surgeon from the Atlanta area has been accused of negligence in a medical malpractice lawsuit. The plaintiff accused the doctor of cavalierly dancing, singing and engaging in other ridiculous antics while she performed surgeries on her patients who were anesthetized at the time. In addition, the lawsuit claims that the doctor didn't have the appropriate qualifications to carry out the procedures she performed.

Medical malpractice topics: What is informed consent?

The term "informed consent" refers to the consent that a patient gives prior to a medical procedure. A doctor will not put you under anesthesia and perform an operation on you until you've expressly given him or her permission to do so. In other words, you need to give your consent. However, your consent also has to be "informed," meaning that your physician has fully described the procedure to you along with its potential risks, so that you can make an educated decision about whether to proceed. This consent usually needs to be codified in writing.

Did your plastic surgery procedure go horribly wrong?

Many Atlanta residents decide to "get a little work done," i.e., seek out a plastic surgeon for a little nip and tuck or other cosmetic procedure to improve their looks or keep the years at bay a little longer. But few expect to have their procedures leave them in worse condition than before their surgeries, or even more serious, cause life-threatening problems.
