By Grant Law Office on December 19, 2016 - Comments off

diagnosisYou’ve heard that a nasty bug is traveling through Atlanta, and one day you wake up and it hits you: fever, headache, nausea, and loss of appetite. You call in sick and head to the doctor, even though you have a hunch on what the problem is. The doctor and staff check you out and diagnose you with what you suspected you had all along: the flu. The doctor tells you to get plenty of rest and drink lots of fluids. You then slouch home, crawl into bed next to a gallon of water, and wait for the bug to take its course.

The Horrific Consequences of Wrong-Site/ Wrong-Patient Surgery

By Grant Law Office on December 15, 2016 - Comments off

doctors-surgeryYou’ve heard the horror stories, and unfortunately, they are true:

  • A patient undergoes surgery on the wrong organ
  • A patient undergoes surgery on the wrong side (wrong leg, wrong arm, etc.)
  • A patient undergoes surgery intended for a different patient

An estimated 1,000 “Wrong Site” surgeries occur each year in America. Wrong site surgeries occur when the surgeon performs a procedure on the wrong organ or body part.

The Dangers of an Air Embolism

By Grant Law Office on December 8, 2016 - Comments off

embolismAn air embolism, also known as a gas embolism, occurs when air enters the vascular system. An air embolism can occur in both a vein (venous) and an artery (arterial). An arterial embolism is more serious than a venous embolism, but both can cause blockage leading to organ damage, stroke, and heart attack. This is because an air bubble in a vein or artery can keep vital, oxygenated blood from reaching organs. During medical treatment, air embolisms may be caused by lung trauma, syringe injection, intravenous (IV) treatment, catheters, and other surgical treatments.
