Here's how doctor-patient confidentiality works

When it comes to medical malpractice, you may not consider doctor-patient confidentiality as part of the equation. But actually, when broken, that confidentiality can become the centerpiece of a malpractice claim, or an invasion of privacy claim. To better understand this, let's take a look at doctor-patient confidentiality and see how this principle of the medical world functions.

Routine operation goes horribly wrong

Four hundred miles due south of Covington, a jury recently decided in favor of a woman who suffered internal damage during a routine gallbladder operation. The jury agreed that the woman should receive nearly $11 million from the surgical team and medical center where the botched procedure took place.

The horror of malicious medical malpractice

A few days ago, NBC's news program broadcast here in Covington told the heartbreaking story of an "oncologist who inflicted excessive and painful cancer treatments on hundreds of patients — many of whom didn't have the disease in the first place." The cancer doctor wept as he was sentenced to spend 45 years in prison for his crimes and malicious medical malpractice.

Doctors miss totally blocked artery, man dies of cardiac arrest

As any Covington resident with a history of heart problems can tell you, there are a number of medical tests that can reveal the nature and extent of the issues involved. One of those tests is an electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) which "checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart," WebMD says.

Surgical error changes woman's life forever

If you drive south from Covington for 7 hours, you come to Clayton County, Georgia. It is perhaps most famous in fiction as the setting of Tara, the home of Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind." The suburban Atlanta county is also where a customer service representative recently waited for three days as a jury contemplated her medical malpractice claims against two surgeons and their practice.
