Hospital Negligence Archives

Dozens suing West Virginia cardiologist for medical malpractice

A drive of less than two hours will take you from Huntington to Raleigh General, a hospital in Beckley, West Virginia. In 2008, there were 107 cardiac procedures performed at the facility. A year later, the figure had surged more than 300 percent, to 350 procedures. By 2010, the number of cardiac procedures rose to 1,745.

It's About Time

Time is our common enemy. It takes away youth, the moments you have to complete a task by a deadline and slowly erodes those last few seconds that tick down toward a University of Charleston victory.

Medical quality: West Virginia ranked 50th among states

There are scores of analyses, rankings, lists and assessments of health care in America. Not long ago, WalletHub put together a list of the best and worst states for doctors. That is, what are the places for physicians to live and work?

Obtaining justice

When a medical emergency hits, what better place for a patient to be than in the hospital? While the answer might be obvious in theory, it is less so in reality sometimes.

Injured for life

Some injuries caused by a negligent doctor or medical facility might result in months or even years of physical pain, mental anguish, repeated surgeries and physical therapy. Other injuries are even worse.

Unneeded, unwanted

Regular West Virginia readers of our blog might recall the story of a small-town cardiologist written up last year in the New York Times. Unfortunately, he wasn't being hailed for his dedication to patients or a breakthrough in his practice. Instead, Dr. Arvind Gandhi made the pages of the Times because he's being sued for medical malpractice by nearly 300 people.
