Servicing Sault Ste. Marie and all of Ontario
Like many Northern Ontario communities, Sault Ste. Marie has battled out-migration of its young people for many years. A vibrant community needs young people. That’s why an impending birth is always especially exciting news here.
But that joy can turn to heartache and pain if a tragic and preventable injury occurs during the birthing process. Acquired brain injuries, spinal cord damage, significant swelling of soft tissue of the scalp (caput succedaneum), bruising or marks from forceps, brachial palsy and shoulder dystocia, and fractures can result in lifelong disability or even death.
We go to medical facilities seeking help to ensure our continued good health or for treatment of ailments. We don’t anticipate the care we receive there could potentially lead to serious injury or death. Yet research indicates there are tens of thousands of errors causing injury made in Canadian hospitals and health care facilities every year and 40 percent of these are preventable.
When preventable medical errors that cause serious harm occur due to negligence, it’s called medical malpractice. Whether the errors occur during surgeries (foreign objects left in the body cavity, infection from improper procedural techniques, surgery on the wrong body part or patient), from misdiagnosis (improper testing, delayed diagnosis), or from mistakes prescribing or administering medication (problems with doses, delivery or incorrect medication), they can result in injuries causing significant pain and suffering for you or your loved ones.
