Needham has one major hospital, the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, which is a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School. In August of 2012, the hospital launched internal efforts aimed at improving the quality, safety, and value of health care provided in Needham. Part of this initiative is a series of Innovation Grants to foster intensive, high-quality science to respond and evaluate real-world solutions. The Center for Healthcare Delivery Science, which is the center formally charged with maintaining these new initiatives awarded several grants for proposals to improve operating room methods, techniques for improving moderate sedation, and care for patients with chronic kidney disease. Although Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center strives to assist patients, the hospital has been the location of a few allegations of medical malpractice claims, especially with weight loss procedures and the aftermath of surgeries including complications due to infection.
While medical professionals act in the best interest of their patients, unfortunately, sometimes errors can be made when providing health care. These errors may be made at various stages of the health care process, including at the surgical, pharmaceutical, or HMO insurance phases. If an individual is harmed due to the negligence of a health care provider, he or she may be able to obtain damages for a medical malpractice claim. Examples of medical malpractice include but are not limited to delays in diagnosis of cancer, bowel perforations, infections post surgical operations, birth injuries due to a physician’s error during the birthing process, and errors caused by surgical staff during a procedure.
As Needham continues to expand into a larger town, the number of construction sites increases through out the major roadways, streets, and neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the sudden increase in construction sites may lead to accidents caused by or for construction workers and individuals who are walking, driving, or living near the sites. Workers injured on construction sites may have two sources of compensation for their medical bill and lost wages. The Massachusetts worker’s compensation system provides payment for all injured workers, regardless of fault. In addition, if a third party, such as a contractor or subcontractor was responsible for the injury, the worker may be eligible for a claim against the third party. Individuals who are residents of Needham or persons traveling through construction sites are also eligible for compensation for injuries caused to them by the negligence of workers and contractors.
