Is your doctor protecting you? To often, doctors commit medical malpractice when they fail to monitor a patient’s condition, resulting in serious injury or death. In many cases, a doctor will fail to properly oversee a patient’s status during surgery or monitor a patient’s recovery after surgery.
In others, a doctor will examine a patient, and order tests, but fail to follow-up and/or find out the results of the tests. When a doctor fails to monitor a patient’s condition, and it worsens or hastens the patient’s death, the doctor is negligent.
There are many situations in which a doctor will fail to monitor a patient’s condition, including:
- Failing to monitor a patient during surgery, including proper administration of anesthesia, confirmation that oxygen is getting to the brain, and overall monitoring of the patient’s health
- Failing to follow-up and review the results of tests the doctor has ordered
- Failing to monitor a patient’s recovery, including verifying that there is no internal bleeding, blood clots, infections, respiratory or heart problems
- Failing to review a patient’s medical chart fully, including verifying that the proper medical tests and medicine have been administered to a patient.
