Whether it is a simple check-up or a major surgery, residents in Ohio rely on medical staff to properly care for them when they are ill. Although doctors and medical personnel are trusted by their patients due to their education and experience, medical errors can occur. Medical negligence could lead to tremendous consequences, such as worsen conditions, new medical complications or even death. A patient could suffer greatly if a doctor or medical provider fails to uphold a certain standard of care.
A recent report showed that more than 100,000 medical workers, including doctors, nurses and technicians, suffer from or struggle with abuse or addiction of alcohol or narcotics.
