Medical treatments are not always simple affairs. Although most New Mexico residents probably want quick, pain-free medical care, a patient's relationship with a hospital may not end following the end of the treatment. Sometimes, a patient may discover that the treatment only caused further suffering. When this suffering is the result of a doctor or nurse's negligence, victims may have rights that need to be protected.
Negligence can occur at hospitals, dental offices, nursing homes and operating theaters. It can take the form of a surgeon leaving tools within a patient, a doctor prescribing a medicine that a patient has a known allergy to or a doctor providing a patient with a faulty diagnosis. Whatever the case, these instances of medical malpractice can result in life-altering effects for victims. This is why it is of the utmost importance that victims do everything they can to ensure that they are able to receive whatever compensation they may be owed.
