Report seeks to raise medical malpractice awareness

Many medical care providers work diligently to provide the best possible care for their patients.

A recent report issued by Consumer Reports recently examined doctor's licensing records in an attempt to make people more aware of the importance of transparency.

Citations issued following investigation into nursing home abuse

Those who require care at a nursing home facility in Pennsylvania are often sometimes unable to be their own advocate. Due to mental and physical conditions, some are left unable to communicate. As a result, some say that hidden video cameras are starting to play an increasingly helpful role in detecting nursing home abuse. Such technology reportedly helped identify instances of such abuse at an out-of-state facility.

Despite these advances, many patients find themselves suffering as a result of harm caused by medical staff. For example, personnel at an out-of-state hospital are contacting patients to let them know they could have potentially been exposed to three different blood borne diseases as a result of the alleged actions of a hospital employee, likely prompting some to question whether hospital negligence may have been a factor.
