Connecticut Medical Malpractice: Adverse Events Occur More In Pediatric Teaching Hospitals
A recent article published by the Academy of Pediatrics shows that pediatric adverse events have shown zero improvement, and have also been shown to be much higher in teaching hospitals.
What is an adverse event? It is when a patient receives medical care, treatment, or medication where the patient is harmed. In some cases these adverse events may be considered Connecticut medical malpractice.
Nearly 3,800 medical records were examined and roughly half of the injuries were identified as being preventable.
