When mistakes are made on the job, there are often repercussions. Maybe you didn’t send out that report on time, or your boss has asked you for a favor that slipped your mind, or you overslept and missed an important meeting with a client. Bad days at work happen, and people make mistakes. When we make mistakes at work, it can often stick with us throughout the day, and perhaps into the night, when we go home and talk about the stress of our day with our loved ones. We try our best to get a restful night’s sleep, wake up bright and early, and give it our all to make the following day better.
However, not everyone is in a position to bounce back so easily from a mistake made on the job. Doctors, nurses, and various medical personnel are placed in a position of authority, not only within a hospital environment but when it comes to the health of a patient, they are in charge of whether or not that patient’s health improves. When mistakes are made within the hospital environment, it can leave those involved affected with more than just a “rough day” and a complaint to a spouse. The results are often dire, and life-threatening.
When death or serious injury occurs as the result of medical malpractice, it can leave the patient, or the patient’s surviving family, suffering from more than just the accruement of a mountain of medical bills. Depending on the seriousness of the negligence on the part of the medical personnel, and the resulting consequences, the pain, and devastation of loss is something that will affect the victim or victim’s family for the rest of their lives.
