“Patient dumping” victimizes vulnerable patients

When you or a loved one visit the emergency room, you expect quality care. You would also expect that when it is time for your discharge, the medical staff would make sure you had a safe ride home or a place to go. Unfortunately, this is not always the case for those who visit hospitals in Illinois and elsewhere. A recent story has brought the seldom-heard-about issue of “patient dumping” to the public’s awareness.

Maybe you are driving back from work late at night, pushing through the last leg of a road trip or just heading home from a friend’s house with little to no sleep. No matter the situation, the reality is that you are driving while drowsy, and this may be as dangerous as driving drunk.

When to seek a second medical opinion

When it comes to people you trust, your medical caregivers probably fall somewhere near the top of that list. Because medical professionals undergo extensive training and education to get where they are, it is not uncommon to take them at their word, and in many cases, no harm is caused in doing so.
