Incorrect prescription method can lead to medication errors

Making sure that medications are taken properly is a duty of people who dispense medications, such as nurses and doctors in hospitals and nursing homes. One thing that has to be considered is the best method for a patient to take the medication. In some cases, the choices are whether to swallow a pill whole or to cut it or crush it to make it easier to take. There are some instances in which crushing or cutting a pill isn't appropriate.

How does multiple gestation affect prenatal care in Kentucky?

A woman who finds out she is expecting more than one baby might have a lot of questions. One of those questions is likely going to be how the multiple gestation will affect her prenatal care. The answer actually depends on the gestational order of the pregnancy, as well as a host of other factors. There are some basic guidelines that our Kentucky readers should be aware of when it comes to twins, triplets or higher order multiples.

Liability varies in medical and hospital malpractice cases

Anyone who seeks care from a medical professional wants to find out what medical condition is causing their symptoms. They also want to find out a treatment plan for the condition. In every case, the patient has a right to receive proper medical care that is done in an acceptable manner. Some patients might find that their medical case wasn't handled properly. When that occurs in Kentucky, victims of that medical malpractice might opt to pursue compensation. The question then comes up about who should be named as a defendant. The answer to that isn't always easy because there might be more than one person who can be sued for medical malpractice.
