Medical malpractice attorneys commonly see cases in New Mexico like the tragic events that occurred recently in the northeast where health officials have confirmed a neurosurgery patient treated at a New Hampshire hospital this spring did have a rare brain disorder known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. That means that 15 other people in three states may have been exposed to the invariably deadly infection through potentially tainted surgical equipment.
The standard disinfection tquiniques used currelty do not erradicate this disease and , because hospitals frequently share high-cost neurosurgery equipment on a fee-for-use or rental basis, these disease spreading instruments were used in more than one hospital.
Dirty and tainted surgical equipment, inattentive/rushed health care workers, and other negligent behavior commonly lead to tragic medical mistakes. Those preventable mistakes are often called medical malpractice.
