In an environment where co-workers work long hours together, it isn't unusual for them to become friendly towards one another, as many Florida residents may know. Some may even become comfortable enough to joke around with or pull pranks on one another. Most of the time these jokes and pranks are harmless fun, like moving objects or jump scares. However, there are times when these jokes can go a step too far. One woman has filed a medical malpractice and invasion of privacy lawsuit against the hospital where she once worked because of photos that were taken by a colleague during her surgery.
Recognizing symptoms is an important part of a doctor's job and many Florida residents, and others living across the nation rely on that knowledge in order to remain healthy and to make informed medical decisions. There are cases, however, where doctors miss what may later appear to be an obvious diagnosis. A missed diagnosis can sometimes have disastrous results for the patient and his or her family, and may often lead to the filing of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
