Tell Your Surgical Providers About Your Medical Conditions, Pat Iyer @avoidmederrors @patiyer #nurseup #nursefriendly #healthcare

Tell Your Surgical Providers About Your Medical Conditions, Pat Iyer @avoidmederrors @patiyer #nurseup #nursefriendly #healthcare:"A Court ruling says patient should have revealed her medical conditions. The surgical team was held not liable for her death of a stroke after a hip replacement.
A 71-year-old woman who died after suffering a post-operative stroke neglected to inform caregivers about her chronic vascular disease before undergoing elective hip-replacement surgery at a Mississippi hospital. Because the hospital and surgical team were unaware of the increased risks before the procedure, a state court of appeals has cleared them of wrongdoing."​2012/04/​tell-your-surgical-providers-ab​out-yo...
