Understanding a medical device recall

Some treatments require patients to undergo surgery or even having device implanted in his or her body. While medical devices are found to be very beneficial when it comes to treating certain medical problems and diseases, medical devices are also proven to cause serious harm to patients if they are found to be defective. Thus, patients need to understand if a device they are using is recalled or should be by assessing their health and how the device is currently working.

Initiating an action for a defective medical device

When individuals in Ohio and elsewhere are provided medical advice from a medical professional, it is likely that this advice is taken seriously and relied on. This might mean taking a certain medication, undergoing a specific treatment or even having a medical device placed inside the body of the patient. These steps are taken in the best interests of our health, but unfortunate and grave consequences could follow if medical errors are made or a medical device is found to be defective.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on August 29th that it was recalling some 465,000 implantable pacemakers over cyber security concerns. Namely, the FDA is concerned that malicious hackers could take control of the pacemaker for nefarious purposes, including initiating improper pacing or rapidly depleting the batteries. 

Asbestos-related illnesses have been increasing

Individuals go to work on a weekly basis to secure a paycheck. A steady income is necessary to meet your financial needs. However, when employees in Ohio and elsewhere are harmed by the work environment they work it, this can generate a wide variety of problems. A work-related illness does not only harm the health of an employee but can also limit his or her ability to work. Thus, it is important to consider your rights and options when you are diagnosed with a work-related illness.

Surgical residents vulnerable to causing surgical errors

Preparing to have surgery, whether routine or emergency, is never easy for patients in Ohio or elsewhere. Even when a patient is well acquainted with their surgeon and medical team, some concerns and overwhelming thought could persist. Although a surgeon has years of experience, education and training, a surgeon is also human. This means they are subject to human errors, which could occur during a surgical procedure. Even more so, at a teaching hospital, a patient is likely to expect surgical residents playing a role in their surgery as well.
