Servicing Oakville and all of Ontario
An acquired brain injury (ABI) can happen in an instant – but its effects can last a lifetime. Changes in a person’s cognitive abilities, behaviour and personality, communication skills, sensory perception and other issues can significantly impact a person’s day-to-day life and their relationships with others.
Fortunately, expanding support systems, such as a pilot project that brought ABI days services (social recreation, functional rehabilitation, and peer support) to Oakville recently, are significantly helping people with ABIs and their loved ones in their recovery.
Part of the recovery process involves coming to terms with the nature of the injury and how it happened. For some people with ABIs, this means dealing with the knowledge that another person’s negligence caused or contributed to their debilitating condition. Sadly, sometimes medical practitioners and facilities that provide essential treatment and care for people with ABIs may have also played a role in the situations that caused them.
Medical Malpractice and Surgical Errors
Anyone can make a mistake and accidents can and do happen everywhere. But if medical personnel or facilities breach standards of care due to negligence, life-altering ABIs and other serious and preventable injuries or death can occur. This is called medical malpractice, and it can include:
- Medication errors (incorrect prescriptions or administration of drugs)
- Surgical errors (medical tools or objects left inside the body cavity, poor skill or incorrect sanitary processes causing preventable infection, scarring, or nerve damage, surgery on the wrong body part or person)
- Misdiagnosis (improper testing, delayed diagnosis, carelessness reading charts).
- Preventable birth injuries (including brachial palsy and shoulder dystocia).
