Can I be prescribed the wrong medication?

Following your trip to your West Virginia doctor, you may receive a drug prescription for your newly diagnosed medical disorder. Naturally, you expect that your physician has done due diligence in making sure you have the correct medication or that your pharmacy will fill the correct order. However, sometimes a patient can end up with the incorrect drug.

What is required to prove medical malpractice?

There are many situations where people in West Virginia may not be happy with a health care provider, but how can you know when your situation goes beyond just being unhappy and is an actual case of medical malpractice? The answer lies in the law, which is very specific as to what needs to be proven in order for a charge of malpractice to be levied.

Why patients should receive informed consent

Medical patients should understand the possible risks that come with any treatment for their illness, condition or injury. A failure on the part of a West Virginia physician to relay this information can result in a patient agreeing to a treatment that can result in harm or injury.

Never events likely to occur in emergency rooms

Anyone who goes to emergency rooms in the Wheeling area expects to receive immediate treatment for what ails them. They understand that there may be times when they must wait longer than expected due to priority being given to patients who have more serious conditions and life-threatening injuries. They might not realize there is a high-risk of things going wrong in emergency rooms. Many emergency rooms across the country are understaffed. The health care professionals who work in them are overworked and stressed. According to MSU Today, "mistakes and never events are more likely to occur" as the amount of stress physicians and health care workers experience increases.
