Medical Malpractice: The Autopsy Truth

Hospital malpractice autopsuMissed diagnoses and medical malpractice effect the overall quality of care. That results in costly strains on our health care system. Most autopsies document good medical care, but depending on the details of the death or injury, performing an autopsy is to simply and objectively discover the true cause of death – which should be the goal for all parties involved.

For example, a hospital where there’s an issue regarding diagnosis of prophylaxis for leg clots or a pulmonary embolism – the speculation of the diagnosis creates additional costs for everyone; hospitals, families, attorneys, etc. Many hospitals might choose to settle medical malpractice, some not. Costs escalate regardless.

autopsy results A properly documented autopsy can reveal the truth. Using the example above – an expert forensic pathologist’s report, supported by high-quality autopsy photos, could show either a pulmonary embolism or not, or possibly an alternative medical-related cause. Finding the true cause of death through an autopsy can be healing for the family as well as reduce medical malpractice costs for the hospital. The truth can not only provide an education for the hospital staff and closure for families – but save everyone time and expensive litigation fees.

Dr. Dan Schultz

As a forensic pathologist, I have a passion for taking on the challenge of discovering the true cause of a death. And as an expert autopsy doctor and pathologist, I provide the non-biased truth, supported with expert photos and documentation. The goal is to get the truth through final diagnosis.
