Over the years, we've learned that medical malpractice doesn't discriminate. It can effect young, old, rich, poor, black, white you name it.
It happens when a hospital, HMO or physician doesn't follow established patient safety rules - and makes a choice not to put the patient's safety first. And you will hear a lot of excuses for it - inexperienced interns, a faulty hospital system, a doctor in a rush, etc. but the truth is, all medical malpractice is preventable.
That's why we published Picking Up the Pieces - a parent's guide to help families talk about this difficult subject. No one wants to think it could happen to them, and everyone reacts differently - with disbelief, anger, sadness, etc.
But at the end of the day, you need to take action to investigate whether medical malpractice affected your family.
So this publication is a free gift to families, no strings attached and no obligation. Its a process, and you shouldn't have to go it alone.
