New technologies bring new complications in surgery

For many Maryland residents, it may seem like each time they visit the doctor's office, they discover new technologies used in medical care. These technologies may have the potential to reduce costs and improve patient care, when used properly. When not used properly, however, the new technologies can bring devastating personal injury to patients if there is surgeon negligence.

Could electronic medical records prevent future mistakes?

A recently released report by the Department of Health and Human Services shows that many hospitals are failing to report errors that caused harm to patients. Often, these errors are not recorded because hospital staff members are unaware of the parameters for reporting errors. When hospitals fail to report errors that caused harm to patients, they miss the chance to learn from their past mistakes.
