Have you ever spun in circles to the point where you fell down? After so many spins you lost all control of your body and you toppled over. Even getting back up was hard. You had to wait until you got our bearings and then you can try again. The idea of failing is only awful when you don’t try and try again. Unfortunately, a modern medical failure means something different. Failure means that there is nothing to be done. Sometimes it means stopping when really you should keep going. Our Hawaii failure to treat attorneys at Kurzban, Kurzban, Tetzeli, & Pratt has worked with hundreds of victims of doctors who failed. These victims were unable to get the treatment needed because of various reasons. But, when it comes to the health and well being of a human, no person should have barriers to getting the health care they need.
There are multiple reasons why doctors fail their patients. For example, the victim did not have insurance. If you don’t have the means to pay then doctors may choose not to treat you. Is this fair? Not at all. Your inability to pay should not prevent you from getting the help you need. Another example is specialists were not brought onto the case when it was needed. Doctors are used to giving referrals. There are times when specialists are needed and if not given that opportunity then the victim can suffer more. For example, 59-year old Heeia went to the doctors with symptoms that looked like the flu. The first time he went into the emergency room he was sent out with only nausea medication. He returned a few days later and had to be put into an induced coma because of kidney and liver failure.
The doctor who diagnosed and helped Heeia has been practicing for 30 years. With that kind of knowledge and experience, he was able to quickly asses what happened and was able to save Heeia who had flat-lined twice. Thankfully the doctor knew to test for bacteria as it was known that Heeia worked on a farm and was prone to getting cuts and walking through muddy water. Not everyone gets the luck of having such an experienced doctor. Like the initial emergency room treatment, sometimes hospitals are quick to churn people out instead of providing the health care they need.
