Connecticut Medical Malpractice: When Surgeons Make Mistakes
Connecticut medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care and the patient is permanently harmed. Medical malpractice can include not referring a patient to a specialist for further testing, incorrectly performing a procedure, ordering the wrong medication, and not informing the patient of a less invasive procedure.
A man died recently after a needle was left in his chest. The surgeon attempted to retrieve the needle, but was unsuccessful. The patient ultimately died a painful and unnecessary death.
