Drug offenses can lead to decades in prison: Learn more

There are many strict laws regarding drug abuse and possession in Georgia. If you are caught with drugs, you could face serious fines and penalties. These penalties vary based on the type of drug you're discovered with and the potential for that drug to lead to abuse.

Why do misdiagnoses happen?

One of the most common reasons that doctors face medical malpractice lawsuits is because of misdiagnoses. A misdiagnosis can occur for many reasons, from a patient not giving the medical provider enough information to the medical provider failing to order the correct tests. A misdiagnosis happens when a medical provider determines an incorrect diagnosis, fails to provide a diagnosis or delays a diagnosis for a length of time. In every case, malpractice relies on the patient suffering harm in some way.

How can hospitals avoid 'never events?'

One of the most common surgical errors is known as a 'never event.' A never event is a surgical event that never should have happened under the correct circumstances. For example, a surgeon should never leave a sponge inside a patient. Similarly, a surgeon should never operate on the wrong body part.

A common condition could be overdiagnosed, experts agree

A misdiagnosis is a serious problem that people must address as quickly as possible. One thing that has become clear is that some diagnoses happen far too often. For instance, the diagnosis rate of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has increased over time, which could be an indication that it's being overdiagnosed.
