I hope everything works out for your mom with her surgery. I think that any facility that handles a surgery of that level would not be looking to rush her discharge. And if they are in a hurry to move her out to an acute care facility shortly after surgery, contact the social workers in the...Read more »
I lost contact with my brother ten years ago and searched for him ever since. I am just now learning he suffered a stroke and lost his memory.

we had a failed IVF cycle at a clinic that was a terrible experience from start to finish. Since then, another doctor told me that the treatment (starting stimulation on day 21, retrieval on day 7/8) "makes no sense", and others have seconded this. I've asked the clinic why this was... Read more »
In the absence of injury, you cannot maintain a medical malpractice case. There must be an act of negligence that is causally related to an identified injury. If this failed cycle of IVF reduced your chances of success with subsequent cycles or attempts, then maybe you have a basis for a lawsuit....Read more »
There was not a question here, but if you are wondering whether you have the basis for a medical malpractice claim, it does not seem likely. It's possible the office might not be attentive to scheduling things in the best possible manner. But med mal cases are generally based on a failure of a...Read more »
There wasn't a question included in your post, but if you're wondering whether the doctor's conduct would be considered medical malpractice, the short answer is, "very unlikely." It might be inconvenient, or it might evidence poor scheduling. But unless the cancellations...Read more »
My wife's birth was more complicated than her pregnancy. She was supposed to have a better birth, but it ended up being 3 and a half hours long of tremendous pushing.

If your son has a case, it would be for malpractice. Getting an MRSA infection is not, by itself, evidence of malpractice. You should contact a medical malpractice attorney to discuss the issue. Your son's medical records will need to be obtained from every ER where he was seen, as well as...Read more »
Establish parentage behind my back. My son who is four already has a legal father who signed a vdop that is filed with DVDs at the time of birth and he had an active case prior to this to establish 50/50 custody with me. Fast forward....my son's possible biological parent then staged a DV and... Read more »
I would guess there is much to this story that has not been told. You are right, you do have conflicting orders, and technically yours is last in time. However, since you knew of the biological father he should have been noticed of your action and it should have been disclosed to the court that...Read more »

Medical Malpractice is not WC, so you need a different forum. Probably not malpractice for failure to say why you are in pain. As for workers comp, you can always file a claim. For psyche cases you must meet the 50% threshold. In your case you have waited 6 months to file, and this case you have...Read more »
It could be an issue presented to a jury to decide, but it is not unequivocal proof on its face. An attorney (unless they had a medical background, and probably had more information to review) would not be able to make this determination. If you are contemplating legal action, you should consult...Read more »
place when he went home and went to another doctor they saw on the disc the tear from the doctor that place the stent. Would that be medical neglience or malpractice. He had emergency open heart surgery after several complications
It's possible it could be. You could arrange a consultation with a med mal attorney in California. Many offer free initial consults. If the law firm felt that there could be the basis for a case, they would request your medical history and surgery records and review them with a medical...Read more »
I asked a surgeon to inject dermal filler into my lips. He proceeded to do eight rapid stabs in the area around my lips. Nothing was injected, nothing as viscous as filler could have been injected through a small gauge needle that fast. Its just not how dermal fillers are injected. After he walked... Read more »
First thing, if you are not an MD do not hold yourself out to being one, directly or indirectly. For instance "psychiatrist" suggests a medical license. There are a number of paramedical professionals with degrees . You do not want to be confused for claiming a degree or license that...Read more »
I'm not sure that there is a question. You have this posted in medical malpractice, until you have a second medical opinion, you aren't going to have any basis to know whether there was any malpractice at all. Doctors cannot guarantee perfect outcomes or perfect performance, but they do...Read more »
