Don't be the victim of a prescription mistake

Massachusetts residents go to their doctors for a number of reasons. They may be sick and in need of treatment or they may just want a physical to make sure their health is on track. If you go to the doctor and end up coming out with a prescription for a medication, you want to trust that your medical provider and pharmacist are going to do right by you. Unfortunately, prescription mistakes happen all too often.

The threats posed by electronic health records in pediatrics

Technology has improved many aspects of the various fields of medicine nationwide, including in Massachusetts. However, system errors and operator mistakes can lead to medical malpractice claims. Following an assessment of electronic health record systems in pediatrics, several areas of concern arose.

Nursing errors can cause just as much harm as doctor errors

If you are like most people here in Massachusetts, you probably think of doctors and surgeons when you think about medical malpractice regarding medication mistakes. However, another class of medical professionals exist, whose errors can cause just as much harm -- nurses.

Signs that all may not be well in your loved one's nursing home

As an adult child of an aging parent in Massachusetts, you probably worry about your mother's or father's overall well-being as much as you worry about your children's. When parents enter their Golden Years, the parent/child relationship takes on a whole new perspective. In your youth, your parents worried about you as you navigated life's stages, such as your toddler years, pre-teens and into young adulthood. Now, it's you who worries whether your mother or father is safe and in good health.

Building a strong claim for nursing home abuse victims

It is disheartening and frustrating to learn that a loved one may have experienced mistreatment while staying at a Massachusetts nursing home. If you suspect abuse or neglect of any kind, you may want to take legal action, but you may not know what to do next. Building a claim for nursing home abuse or negligence is not an easy process, but it is not something you have to do alone.

How can liquor liability affect your case?

If you suffered injuries in a drunk driving accident, you may know that you have the right to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. However, you would be wise to consider all potential liable parties that you could name in your claim. It is possible that liquor liability could have a significant role in your case and your attempt to obtain compensation. 

Is food poisoning making you sick?

Food poisoning affects over one hundred thousand people in the United States every year. Sadly, 3,000 people will die every year because of foodborne illness. Those with compromised immune systems, the very young and the very old are most at risk from the dangers of improperly handled food.

Restaurant negligence can be recipe for disaster

If you're one of many busy Massachusetts residents, you may not get many opportunities to dine out with loved ones or friends. When you're finally able to break away for a bit of rest and relaxation, you may anticipate visiting your favorite local restaurant as eagerly as children await Christmas morning. On the other hand, rather than stick within your usual traditions, you may decide to try a new restaurant you've been hearing about at work.

Chemical restraint is more convenient for nursing home staff

If you have an elderly parent in a nursing home, you may take for granted that the staff looks out for your loved one's best interests and well-being. This may be especially important to you if your parent's progressing Alzheimer's is the primary reason why you chose that facility in the first place. You may know first-hand how important it is that the nursing staff carefully monitor your parent for his or her own safety.
