My project this week for class was to prepare a PowerPoint presentation presenting a real scenario in which error or negligence occurred in the medical setting. This was to reflect the economic impact of the situation. Normally I do not post my presentations on here. They usually focus on administrative garbage no one on here would care about. However, this presentation focuses on a patient having surgery for endometriosis. As you will see, the situation wasn’t grave (no wrong site surgery), but still affected the patient both financially and emotionally.
In situations like these, who pays? The hospital or the patient? As we discussed as a class, it’s too often the patient and the insurance company at a loss. The system needs to change.
Enjoy the presentation.
