Medical malpractice claim follows discovery of surgical sponge

Reports of things that can go wrong during surgical procedures in hospitals nationwide, including North Carolina, can lead to anxious anticipation for anyone who is scheduled for surgery. A recent filing of a medical malpractice case in another state underscores the extended period of pain and suffering that can result when a foreign object remains inside the body of a patient after an operation. This case involves a surgical procedure in 2015 that caused the patient severe health problems afterwards, and the patient didn't find out the cause until four years later.

Employers must conduct frequent workplace hazard assessments, analyze them and address potential injury hazards. Unfortunately, it is often only after preventable accidents happen -- some of them catastrophic -- that safety authorities come in and identify safety violations. An employee of a North Carolina arms company was a victim of a preventable amputation injury, and the worker will likely rely on workers' compensation benefits to provide financial assistance.

The principal of a high school in Raleigh advised parents that he had arranged for a team of psychologists, social workers and counselors to provide support to students after a tragic event that claimed the life of a ninth grader. Traumatic events like fatal motor vehicle accidents that kill fellow students are known to cause feelings of vulnerability and a range of emotions. These could include anxiety, sadness, anger and fear, all of which can be eased during discussions with professionals who can help affected students to process their emotions.
