Radiology and medical malpractice

In order to accurately diagnose the conditions of their patients, many Iowa doctors rely on imaging technology. Sometimes, radiologists read the images incorrectly, resulting in patient harm caused by failures to diagnose, delays in diagnoses and incorrect diagnoses. If you have suffered because your images were read incorrectly, you may be able to recover damages through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Keeping track of medication

For Iowa patients who have serious illnesses such as cancer, managing medication can be challenging. However, there are some tips that they and their caregivers can use to make sure that they are taking the right medication and taking it as directed. First, it is important for patients or their caregivers to ensure that the patient has the right medication. Patients should also make sure that they know how much of their medication to take.

Breach of doctor-patient confidentiality can lead to lawsuit

When you go to see your doctor, one of the last things on your mind is whether or not that doctor will release or reveal information about your visit to other people. This is because of doctor-patient confidentiality, an incredibly important concept that every doctor must uphold. If doctor-patient confidentiality didn't exist, there would be many people who would simply avoid going to the doctor out of fear that their embarrassing medical condition would be broadcast to the whole world.
