Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorney Blog

This blog post deals with medical malpractice lawsuits, appellate court case decisions and changes in Illinois and federal law related to medical negligence. The blog also includes changes in practice. For example, many of the blog posts discuss the changes in the medical practice generally, including how the practice of medicine affects health care overall. Today more than ever, electronic medical records are the norm. This is a profound change from the past. Most doctors, nurses and medical providers in the past have written their medical record entries by hand which made up the patient’s hospital or practitioner’s chart. That fashion has been overcome by the electronic medical records and electronic, computer-generated posting of patient progress notes. In our practice when handling a medical malpractice lawsuit, audit trails are requested in each case. The reason for that is among other things, the audit trail allows a lawyer to have an outline of what entries were made on the hospital chart, when they were made and by whom. The untangling of electronic medical records is much more involved today than it has in the past. There are different databases, there are different medical record programs and there are different locations for storing medical records in today’s hospital settings. This blog post also concentrates on the elements of medical negligence. Oftentimes posts discuss the many ways that medical professionals can avoid injuring patients unnecessarily.
