Fires do occur in hospital operating rooms

While lying on an operating table, a patient that had been administered anesthesia recalls a nurse screaming: "Oh, my God! He's on fire!" The patient was not imagining what he heard because he actually did suffer second-degree burns to his shoulder, chest and neck due to a hospital error.

A failure to diagnose leads to amputation of student's arm

A former Ohio University student is claiming that an incorrect diagnosis led to her arm being unnecessarily amputated. The student had three times reported to the medical facility complaining about severe pain, fever and nausea. Each time she was mistakenly diagnosed with sore throat, muscle pain and anxiety when in fact she was suffering from a flesh eating bacterium known as necrotizing fasciitis.

Medication errors usually occur during administration

Kentucky and Ohio patients may be interested in knowing that most medication errors occur during the administration phase. And a recent study has shown that more than one-third of such errors involved the giving of medication intravenously.
