While the vast majority of patients treated in both inpatient and outpatient settings in New Jersey and across the country receive appropriate and timely care, medical treatments are provided by people and people can make mistakes. When discussing medical malpractice, most people think of clinical errors such as misdiagnoses or surgical errors. Another area where a mistake can be made is in radiology.
Patients who need surgery are never guaranteed a positive outcome. Burlington residents know that. It's reasonable to assume, however, that the doctors and medical staff involved in an operation won't make avoidable mistakes.
