Is patient dumping illegal?

It has been in the news recently--the concern over patient dumping due to recent occurrences in Baltimore. You may wonder if something like that has happened in Montana. You may also wonder if it is as huge of a problem as the media has made it out to be. Do healthcare facilities really just discharge patients and leave them on their own when they know they have mental health issues or no place to go? Is this practice illegal?

What risks are associated with hip replacement?

As you age, your body begins to wear out. Depending on things like activities you've done, work habits, genetics and other factors, certain parts of your body may wear quicker than others. One common area is the hips. It is normal for people in Montana to need a hip replacement as they age because this joint has a lot of wear and tear. 

The truth about the perception of plastic surgery risks

Many people in Montana view plastic surgery as a simple process to change their looks. However, the reality is that it is actual surgery. Some procedures may not be as evasive as others, but the bottom line is mistakes and complications can happen. 

How common is medical misdiagnosis?

When you visit your Montana doctor, you probably have faith that he or she will be able to assess your condition accurately, and then recommend an appropriate course of treatment. Given just how many conditions and diseases exist in comparison to how many different symptoms patients experience, however, nailing down an exact diagnosis is not something all doctors can do all the time.

Medical error leading to wrongful death

Montana residents, like people across the country, trust their doctor(s) to do what is best for them. They believe that while doctors cannot prevent accidents and injuries resulting in a hospital stay, they can and will treat their patients appropriately and the patients will leave the hospital in a much better condition than when they entered it. Such beliefs and trust are understandable, but unfortunately, they are not always warranted.

Complications associated with cesarean sections

Nowadays, a considerable percentage of mothers who give birth across Montana and the United States deliver their babies via cesarean section, and if you are among them, it is important to understand the unique risks involved. Any major surgery poses risks to you, but babies born via C-section also face risks of their own. At the Law Firm of Edmiston & Colton, we assist clients and their family members who suffer injury during surgical procedures, and we have a firm understanding of just how debilitating surgery-related injuries often are.

How common are medication errors in nursing homes?

There are many concerns you may have about putting a loved one in a nursing home in Montana. You may worry about how he or she will adjust and the level of care provided. These are normal things to think about. Another concern is medication errors, which happen to be quite common in nursing home settings.
