What causes bedsores and what happens if they go untreated?

If you've ever had a loved one that's experienced declined mobility due to either an illness, injury or disability, then there's a good chance that they may have ended up with bedsores as a result. Individuals most often afflicted by them are those who remain seated or laying down for a large portion of the day.

Did failing to meet the standard of care lead to your suffering?

Before you underwent a necessary medical procedure, it may have taken you a considerable amount of time to deal with the nerves and anxiety associated with your situation. Medical issues and treatments make many Arizona residents understandably apprehensive, and for some, the idea of going under the knife or facing other procedures can prove too daunting. However, because you understood the necessity of the procedure, you swallowed your fear and moved forward.

Who's required to procure informed consent and of whom?

Informed consent involves a patient being given a description of a procedure and why it's being recommended. It involves a patient being advised of the known benefits of having a certain procedure performed versus not doing anything at all.

What are some of the more common birth injuries?

There are a number of different factors that may put a pregnant mother at risk for complications during her pregnancy. Among some of those increased risk factors, women may be of advanced maternal age, defined as being over 35, be overweight or have anatomical problems. Mothers who have previously suffered problems during previous pregnancies, such as stillbirths, are at increased risk for complications as well.

How does the circulating nurse help prevent surgical errors?

There are two kinds of nurses that most often work in an operating room. The perioperative ones are generally registered nurses (RN). Their job is to keep bleeding to a minimum, stitch up wounds and to dress them after the procedure has been completed. The role of the circulating nurse (CN), in contrast, is to prevent surgical errors, provide support to doctors and nurses in the operating room and to advocate for the patient.
