Pharmaceutical errors in Maryland - Maryland Injury Lawyers Blog
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Apr 03, 2009 in Uncategorized
Maryland pharmaceutical errors may occur in one out 50 prescriptions but, patients or their families are seldom told about them. You or your loved ones could be one of them. So, please take note. As such errors are happening, our Silver Spring medical malpractice attorneys are willing to fight for your right to hold a negligent medical professional accountable for his or her mistake.
Yet doctors and hospitals do not make it a practice to inform of such errors even when they know about it. Yes, believe it or not, they don't. The main reason is to avoid being blamed for malpractice. Although the Maryland Patient Safety Commission has requested hospitals to notify patients or their immediate families of adverse effects due to prescription drug or pharmaceutical errors, they don't do that very often.
A failure to inform the relevant patients or their families on a timely basis could cause serious implications.
If you or anyone you know is suffering due to pharmaceutical errors, then, find out if the hospital was aware of it beforehand. At Goldberg Finnegan, LLC, we are very much experienced in dealing with these sorts of cases. Give our Silver Spring personal injury lawyers a call at (888) 213-8140 for free legal advice.
