With thousands of individuals seeking medical attention every day, errors are bound to be made. A mistake could be made during surgery, a patient could die from an illness that was never diagnosed or a patient could be given the wrong medication. Sadly, many of these errors are a result of medical negligence and have caused patients in North Carolina and throughout the entire U.S. to suffer severe injuries or death.
In an effort to protect individuals who undergo cosmetic surgery in Fayetteville and throughout the entire U.S., the new president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) warned the public last month about the risk of becoming a victim of medical malpractice. Currently, 48 states allow doctors who are not certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to perform cosmetic surgery.
Patients put their lives in the hands of Fayetteville medical professionals every day. Whether a woman is giving birth or an individual is undergoing surgery, patients trust that their doctors are properly assessing and monitoring the medical situation.
