Judge strikes down law providing for medical malpractice review panels

Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd has ruled that the new law mandating that medical malpractice cases must first be presented to medical review panels is unconstitutional.

Study finds patient ID mix-ups are a big problem

A patient ID mix-up is one of the worst medical mistakes that can happen at a Kentucky hospital. Depending on when it takes place and how much time passes before it is corrected, the consequences of this kind of mistake can be fatal. To make matters worse, one patient ID mix-up frequently affects another patient as well.

Can I sue a hospital for negligence?

If you have been hurt or lost a loved one after receiving treatment in a hospital, you could have grounds to pursue a medical malpractice claim. However, this is much easier said than done as you will need to prove that the negligence caused or contributed to your injuries and identify the negligent party.
