When you're hurt in Florida, you sometimes have to seek medical attention. To do that, you'll head to a local emergency room or doctor's office and trust that the care you'll receive is proper. Most people see hospitals and doctors' offices as places where caring medical professionals perform procedures to make them feel better. In most cases, that's true. Sometimes, errors take place, though, and that can leave a patient in worse shape than when they arrived.
Simply giving a patient a medication they're allergic to can cause anaphylactic shock. Not treating this can lead to low oxygen levels in the body and eventual brain death. Not stopping a patient from bleeding internally after an injury can lead to low iron levels, anemia, or even worse, to death. Whether it's a simple mistake like forgetting to give a patient a medication or a serious error like operating on the wrong site, these medical errors can't be ignored.
