Holding therapists and psychologists accountable

Many people know that they can sue their doctor if their doctor makes a mistake during treatment and that error harms them. But what you may not know is that you can also hold your psychologists or therapist accountable if they fail to treat you.

Failure to diagnose a pulmonary embolism: possible recovery

Doctors are human and humans are prone to commit mistakes. That is why hospitals adopt multiple redundancies to ensure that every error is caught before it develops into a grave or fatal condition. For example, pulmonary embolisms are caused by blood clots, pockets of air or other substances that block the pulmonary arteries which feed blood into the lungs. If a pulmonary embolism goes untreated or undiagnosed, it can and often does become fatal. This post will go over how you may recover for a misdiagnosed pulmonary embolism ("PE").
