'Defensive medicine' leads to huge rise in cardiology malpractice

Have you heard of the term "defensive medicine"? It is used to describe when doctors make treatment decisions not based on what is necessarily in the patient's best interests, but instead in effort to protect the doctor from potential medical malpractice claims.

Medical malpractice could include making errors with medications

Advances in pharmaceuticals contribute to the fact that many New Mexico residents live longer and healthier lives. However, if a mistake is made in prescribing, dispensing or dosing a medication, a patient could suffer serious or fatal health consequences. More than a few medical malpractice claims have been filed because a health care practitioner made a crucial medication error.

Insufficient monitoring of newborns can lead to brain injuries

After spending nine months growing in relative comfort, an infant must travel through the birth canal and into the world. During this process, the baby's oxygen supply could be compromised in a variety of ways. If the New Mexico medical staff attending to the mother and infant during labor and delivery fails to sufficiently monitor them both and react quickly to any problems, the baby could suffer brain injuries.
