EHRs linked to medical malpractice

West Virginia residents who have been subjected to medical negligence should be aware of a study that found a link between malpractice and electronic health records, or EHRs. The study, which was published in Health Affairs, revealed that more than half of pediatric safety errors were related to these records. For example, the study found that one physician ordered five times the recommended dose of a medication because the electronic health record did not alert properly.

Several conditions commonly misdiagnosed in women

Misdiagnosis is a common problem for women in West Virginia who seek medical care with symptoms that could be attributed to many different issues. People who suffer harm due to a misdiagnosis or other medical error might be entitled to compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses or other damages. Among the conditions that are commonly missed in women because of equivocal symptoms are diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, thyroid disease and heart disease.
