'Never events' should never happen in the hospital, but they do

Doctors and hospitals are required to comply with strict training, policies, procedures and guidelines. These rules are in place to protect patients and ensure that preventable errors do not occur and threaten people's lives and well-being.

When medical errors lead to wrongful death

When New Mexico residents become ill or injured, they go to see their doctor and/or enter a hospital. They expect their doctor to properly diagnose their illness or injury and treat it appropriately. They expect all the health care professionals with whom they come into contact to be knowledgeable, well trained and highly competent in their specific fields and duties. The last thing they expect is that professionals will act in a negligent manner that results in the patient dying from his or her illness or injury.
