People see their doctors to solve medical problems, not make them worse. While Orin J.

These are some of the common errors that occur in doctor’s offices, clinics and hospitals:

Failure to monitor patients during surgery or recovery
Infections that should have been prevented
Failure to provide the brain with oxygen
Surgical equipment errors
Birth injury occurring to mother or child, including cerebral palsy

‘Never Events’ Continue To Plague Hospitals And Health Care Centers
The above list includes just some of the errors that should never occur in a hospital setting; even providers and hospital administrators admit the unacceptability of these occurrences, calling them “never events.”
When they occur anyway, it is usually because of an action or omission that falls well below the expected standard of medical care. When that happens, patients and their families are entitled to seek compensation under the principles of centuries-old personal injury law.
