We’ve all heard the horror stories of VA facility medical care —paperwork that takes months to process, caseworkers who can never be reached, and wait times of weeks or months for critically needed care. The veterans of our country deserve better, and if your family member has been a victim of medical malpractice at the VA, I’ll be there for you.
Medical malpractice is a broad term that can mean anything from a doctor who consciously does harm to a patient or makes a mistake in documentation that leads to a poor health outcome. For hospital systems as overworked as the VA, mistakes in care become more and more likely.
If your loved one is receiving medical care at a VA facility, they may be at serious risk to become a victim of a medical mistake or malpractice. Keep a watchful eye on:
- Errors in documentation. A mistake in your loved one’s chart can lead to serious consequences if care providers reference the incorrect information in their chart. For instance, a chart may state the patient is not diabetic, when in fact they are, yet no insulin is administered and the patient goes into a diabetic coma.
- Errors in medication. A medication mix-up can happen in a hospital where floors are understaffed and nurses are overburdened. Mistakes can make existing health conditions worse, or all new health issues may result.
- Surgical errors. Busy surgeons without adequate staff support can easily make surgical errors, such as the failure to identify or prevent complications, perform surgery on the wrong site or even the wrong patient, errors in anesthesia, and failure to provide proper post-operative care.
