Medical Mistakes at Overlake Hospital Medical Center
Overlake Hospital Medical Center is a regional medical center offering a full range of advanced medical services to the Puget Sound Region. It has Level III Trauma Center and is known for providing award-winning, compassionate and patient-centered care. There is no doubt that Overlake Hospital does an excellent job helping thousands of seriously injured patients every year. However, the facility is not exempt from incidents involving medical malpractice or hospital negligence. In fact, there are medical malpractice and negligence cases at Overlake Hospital every year.
The medical malpractice cases that Davis Law Group accepts are very specific to certain types of medical errors. We are currently accepting ONLY medical malpractice cases that involve:
- Wrong site surgery - operating on the wrong body part.
- Retained surgical instruments - items left inside the patient causing long-term / permanent problems or death.
- Medication errors - Wrong drug or wrong drug dose given to patient causing long-term / permanent damage or death.
We are sorry that we cannot provide assistance on other types of cases at this time.
Interesting Statistics: Fewer than one-half of 1% of the nation's doctors face any serious state sanctions each year. State medical boards take serious actions in only about 2,500 incidents in each year--this is a pittance compared to the number of injuries and deaths of patients caused each year by the negligence of doctors or hospital staff.
A doctor, nurse, or other medical professional at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital should never be allowed to needlessly endanger the life or well-being of a patient in their care.
