Family believes hospital negligence led to woman's death

When faced with a stay in the hospital, the vast majority of patients in Texas typically hope for as short and uneventful of a stay as possible. Unfortunately, doctor errors, hospital negligence and other instances of medical malpractice are not as uncommon as some people would hope, and can cause severe injuries and suffering that can drastically extend the time spent in the hospital. For one out-of-state family, a series of medical errors not only extended a loved one's stay but also led to her death.

According to the patient's daughter, the 64-year-old woman was an otherwise active individual with few health problems prior to entering the hospital. The stay in the hospital was prompted by a series of seizures, and doctors assured her that she would only have to stay until the medicine began to take effect. Before she could be discharged, a fall from her bed sparked the first of many medical errors.

Texas dentists settle medical malpractice claims

Recently, four Bexar County dentists reached confidential settlements agreements with about 100 patients. The patients had filed medical malpractice claims against the dentists, alleging that the dentists performed unnecessary treatments.

The patients accused the Smile Center dentists of performing unnecessary and excessive treatments on children. The treatments were then billed to Medicaid. One of the dentists was also accused of engaging in a scheme to both misdiagnose and over-treat children who were covered by Medicaid. From 2008 to 2010, the Smile Center apparently received $28.5 million in Medicaid payments.

Trying to find a solution to the distracted driving accident

A car accident can be caused by a number of things with negligent conduct on the part of a motor vehicle operator being one of them. The distracted driver whose texting and driving could cause a car accident, the drunk driver who gets behind the wheel of a car and crashes into a pedestrian causing pain and suffering or the truck crash caused by a fatigued truck driver are just a small sampling of the things that can cause a car collision.

Making it impossible for anyone to be texting and driving was the goal behind one man’s invention. His device plugs into a car’s electronic system and blocks incoming or outgoing texts and emails. The developer claims the device will go a long way toward ending one of the leading causes of a distracted driving accident.
