Couple files malpractice suit for alleged hospital negligence

Pennsylvania residents usually place inherent faith in those whom they entrust with their medical care. While it is not a common occurrence, one incident of hospital negligence can have life-long repercussions. One such alleged incident resulted in the loss of a patient's limb.

President Roosevelt first established Social Security in 1935 as a safety net for those in retirement. However, its demise has been anticipated for years with many sounding the death knell with greater urgency. These monies, which now take many forms, including but not limited to SSD, SSI and longer-term disability, are an important factor in keeping a roof over the heads of those in need. Pennsylvania residents who depend on these payments may be relieved to hear that the program should be around for the long term.

Former employee sentenced in nursing home abuse case

Many families select a nursing home for their older loved ones based on the belief that those family members will be well-cared for by the staff. Nursing home abuse may be the farthest thing from their minds. Pennsylvania families may benefit from learning more about the outcome of one such incident in a neighboring state.

Former anesthesiologist alleges medical malpractice policies

Doctors study for years and work hard to build a solid reputation as a quality care provider. Therefore, it may be unlikely that an individual doctor would voluntarily make allegations that a hospital would allow policies to remain in place that could lead to a medical malpractice lawsuit without a valid reason. While one particular doctor who has done so is not located in Pennsylvania, the story may be of interest to patients here.
