Cuando la muerte injusta sucede dentro de una ambulancia

AMUBLANCE-ACCIDENT-LAWYER-2-PERAZZO-LAW-225x300Si bien no solemos asociar a nuestros socorristas con hechos de muerte injusta, ¿qué sucede cuando ocurre una negligencia dentro de una ambulancia?

Cuando escuchas el término “muerte injusta” o lees un artículo periodístico sobre negligencia médica, es probable que te imagines a un cirujano. Quizás él o ella ha dejado un instrumento dentro de la cavidad corporal del paciente durante la cirugía. O tal vez piense en un anestesiólogo que ha realizado un error de cálculo y, por lo tanto, le da al paciente una dosis letal de anestesia.

surgical-lighting-1536040-279x300A woman that entered a Miami clinic to undergo cosmetic surgery died after being rushed to a local hospital.  Danea Plasencia, a 28-year old mother of three young children, passed away at Baptist Hospital for reasons under investigation by the Miami-Dade Police homicide department. Plasencia, who according to family members suffered cardiac arrest, was in perfect health upon entering the clinic this past Friday morning. Her grandfather, a medical practitioner in Hialeah, had intended to convince her against having the cosmetic surgery performed. Sadly, he was unaware of when she was scheduled to enter MIA Aesthetics, located at 9300 NW 72nd St. for the cosmetic surgery. Her grandfather, who openly stated his disapproval for this type of surgery, claims that women are lured into low cost surgical procedures by plastic surgeons offering discounts on cash payments, adding that these types of clinics most often carry no medical insurance with which to compensate victims in the event of negligence or medical malpractice. In response to the statements made by Plasencia’s grandfather to news crews responding to the incident, the clinic issued a statement that this fatal incident is the first of its kind in the thousands of surgical procedures carried out over the years. The clinic’s spokesperson added that’s its staff of surgeons is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and aimed at offering its cosmetic surgery patients the safest medical care possible. Nonetheless, the clinic spokesperson admitted to the risks involved with all serious surgical procedures, adding that the clinic will keep the public and its patients informed about  details as they emerge from the investigation that ensues. Meanwhile, family and friends of the victim, hope that cosmetic surgical clinics get the legal attention they deserve in order to prevent more deaths at the hands of low-cost cosmetic surgery clinics and negligent surgeons.

Cosmetic Surgery and Florida Lawbalance-1172786-300x204

The House of Representatives passed a bill earlier this month that holds clinics and healthcare professional, surgeons, and medical practitioners economically liability for compensation to patients that fall victim to medical malpractice. Furthermore, clinics would undergo yearly inspections by the Department of Health, which would be granted the legal right to suspend or take away the clinics operating license if irregularities that jeopardize the well-being of its patients are found. The law aims to enforce the regulations by which cosmetic surgeons and clinics abide. In a statement by the President of ASAP, Dr. Jeffrey E. Lanis, patients considering cosmetic surgery are advised to seek board-certified and skilled plastic surgeons.

Clearwater: The Florida Department of Health emitted a temporary restriction order on a local dentist after reports of repeated DUIs and alleged drug abuse. According to official findings, the dentist not only drives drunk, but may have also been drilling into his patients teeth while under the influences of  downers, as well as other drugs such as speed and pot. The Florida Department of Health states that the dental practitioner has displayed a lack of negligence when dealing with his patients rights to proper medical care and treatment through his unwillingness to abide by state laws and overall concern for the well-being of those sitting in his dentist chair. Concern for the dentist’s interaction with patients began after a series of DUI arrests and toxicology screenings that revealed excessive drinking stints, while hair analysis results showed the use of more serious drugs such as amphetamines, sedatives, and marijuana, all of which are totally unacceptable by the Department of Health. The dentist will remain ineligible to practice dentistry until a health review board determines if he is mentally and physically fit to apply patients with anesthesia or go anywhere near his shaky drill. Patients that have sat in the dentist’s chair, or any dentists that has shown signs of intoxication, can be liable for Dental Malpractice, which entials improper and negligent dental work, improper diagnoses, or misconduct which leads to personal injury or loss.

Florida Rest Stop Robbery? While driving a refrigerated box truck along Interstate 75, a drowsy Florida truck driver had the peace of mind to pull over to catch some zees at a rest stop. Sadly, what he caught was a beating by two individuals that apparently set out to rob both him and his cool cargo. After being dragged out his cab half asleep amid the morning dew, he was not only severely beaten but also shot in the shoulder, according to his testimony and reports from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office. Thus far, investigators have been able to verify that the truck cargo area had been searched by the aggressors, but unsure if anything was stolen. Though the victim has not released any public statements, he has been released from the hospital and recovering from his personal injuries at home. No suspects have been arrested and police are appealing to possible witnesses to provide any leads.

Miami Residents Pondering Plastic Surgery Beware. Wrongful death was the charge for a famous Brazilian plastic surgeon whose patient died of heart failure during a butt implant this past July. The practicing surgeon, AKA Dr. Bum Bum, has testified that the fatality was purely accidental, despite having performed the surgical procedure at home with the help of his mother, girlfriend, and maid; all of whom are also facing charges. Despite the doctor’s claims of having performed over 9000 successful butt implants, official reports state that Dr. Bum Bum, who isn’t even have a real doctor, used an outlawed synthetic resin that may have led to the death of his 46-year-old patient. According to investigative reports, this is not the first incident involving butt implants gone wrong on Miami residents. Though, plastic surgery accounts for a small number of deaths compared to other surgical procedures or everyday accidents, official reports show that there were 31 deaths and some 150 complicated cases over the past seven years. Nevertheless, the Florida Board of Medicine is keeping a close watch on surgeons and facilities to guarantee no fatalities occur during or after plastic surgery procedures in Miami.
