While medical malpractice doesn't usually cause kidney disease, cases of advanced kidney failure are preventable if they are properly diagnosed and treated. Failure to diagnose or treat kidney disease can result in complete kidney failure, time-consuming kidney dialysis, kidney transplant operations and the need for a lifetime of prescription drugs. It can also result in the premature death of those affected.
If you or a loved one are experiencing advanced kidney disease or failure as a result of negligence, Janet, Janet & Suggs, a medical malpractice firm, can help you seek the financial compensation you're entitled to.
What to Know About Kidney Disease Malpractice Cases
Kidney disease malpractice lawyers can help you prove if your kidney failure was the direct result of malpractice or negligence and hold the responsible medical professional liable for financial damages. This allows you to recover compensation for loss of employment, lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses and more.
Mistakes Made During Dialysis
Malpractice occurs when medical professionals make preventable mistakes due to negligence. Common medical errors occurring during the dialysis administration process that may lead to serious complications include:
- Improper use of dialysis devices
- Medical equipment error
- Medication errors and overdoses
- Needle errors that result in hemorrhaging and excessive blood loss
- Sterilization errors that lead to infection
When healthcare professionals make these mistakes, it can result in severe harm to the patient. For patients suffering from kidney failure, hemorrhaging, excessive bleeding, infection, and medication overdose can all be fatal.
Failure to Properly Monitor
A common medical error made by doctors and other medical professionals is failing to properly monitor patients undergoing dialysis. Without proper monitoring, a patient may experience serious ailments that demand immediate action but are left untreated. Improper monitoring during dialysis can also result in patients falling, which can lead to various injuries, including head injuries, internal injuries, broken bones, and more.
