Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Apr 06, 2016 | 0 Comments

You have been injured in a Connecticut accident case that was caused by the fault of another. It may have involved a car, truck or motorcycle accident, it could be a dog bite incident, it might involve a hit-and-run, it could be a pedestrian crosswalk accident case, it could be a trip and fall or slip and fall case, it could be a bicycle accident or any other type of case that results in physical injuries. Your primary concern should be getting better as quickly as possible and one of the best ways you can do that is to investigate ways to get better medical care after you have been injured in an accident.

So what are some of the ways that you can get better medical care and treatment after Connecticut accident case which will hopefully improve the chances of your getting better quicker? Please consider some or all of the following suggestions which are not meant in any way to be all inclusive:

  • It is important after you were injured in some type of an accident that you be transported by ambulance to the nearest hospital so that your medical condition can be determined and a treatment plan can be developed so that you can get better as quickly as possible. You need to be as specific and detailed as possible in describing each and every problem, pain or restriction which you are experiencing as a result of your accident related injuries. You also need to follow the instructions of the doctors or other health care providers so that you can perform the necessary follow-up that will be needed to help you improve as quickly as possible;
  • One Texas emergency room doctor cautioned that freestanding emergency rooms or clinics are popping up all over the place and that they typically do not have anywhere near the resources of a hospital emergency room. The cost may be about the same so if you have some type of serious injury this doctor suggests that you go to a trauma center where specialists and surgeons can examine you and develop a plan for your future follow-up care and treatment;
  • If you have been hospitalized and are going to be discharged to a rehabilitative care facility, it would make sense for you to investigate which facilities have a great deal of experience with your particular medical condition. You might very well find that certain rehabilitative care facilities have much more experience in handling your medical situation than do others so you would certainly want to make sure that you get placed in a facility that is very experienced in handling the type of medical condition which you have that resulted from your accident related injuries; and
  • One hospital pharmacist has warned that you should not interrupt your nurse when they are preparing your medications. Many times when you're in the hospital and your nurse is getting ready to prepare your medication, you will be tempted to ask a number of different questions either about your medical situation or you might engage in small talk with the nurse. One study has determined that the more times you distract your nurse, the greater the likelihood is that some type of error will occur. In fact, the study found that each interruption was linked to a more than 10% in medication errors.
