Patients have difficulty discovering details of medical errors

A recent "On Your Side" investigation by a local ABC affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio, explored the culture of secrecy that can surround mistakes made in hospitals. While medical malpractice attorneys have long been familiar with the difficulties injured patients can face when injured because of hospital negligence or surgical error, the investigative journalists expressed surprise at how often hospitals and medical facilities failed to disclose errors and mistakes that caused injury to patients. 

Friends in high places

The saying goes that it's not what you know, but who you know. That goes for here in Ohio as well as across the country and around the world. Consider the case of an Oklahoma surgeon who was being investigated by state officials because after he performed surgeries, a disturbing number of his patients were left in dire straits: in constant pain, paralyzed -- or even dead.
