Yes, the failure to give blood clot medicine may be a basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Physicians and hospitals should be properly trained and well aware of a patient who is more susceptible to developing a blood clot, particularly when a patient is about to undergo a surgery or is recovering from a procedure.
When the Michigan physician or hospital fails to give out blood clot thinner medication to a patient who has clear symptoms or conditions of blood clotting, and a result the patient suffers injury or death, it may give rise for a medical malpractice lawsuit against the negligent Michigan medical provider.
In addition to failing to give blood clot medicine to a patient, a physician may also be found negligent if they did not carefully monitor a patient who was given a blood clot thinner medication, and as a result the patient suffers from excessive bleeding causing serious harm or death. A scenario such as this may also be bases for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
