Patients complain about lack of information before treatments and surgeries
Deciding to have surgery or an invasive treatment is not easy, so it is common to want to know all the details and possible risks before you start. Being prepared is essential to the success of the procedure, and both patient and doctor know this. Still, a growing number of lawsuits against physicians has piqued the curiosity of researchers at the University of Melbourne, Australia. And why were so many people surprised by the outcome of the procedures they had done?
Over 10,000 complaints were assessed over the course of seven years. Of these, 481 became lawsuits, as the patients developed some type of disability. About 2/3 of these patients began to live with severe sequelae, such as the onset of chronic pain or the need for another surgical procedure.
The main complaints come from the fact that doctors did not warn about what could happen in the event of any complications . On the other side, most pros argue against the indictment by saying that some risks are so rare that it would not even be worth raising them. According to the researchers, many professionals underestimate the importance of these data and end up ignoring some because they do not want to stop the treatment.
Follow the steps to ensure the quality of a medical consultation
Dial in advance
It is no news that nobody must leave the tasks for the last hour. When you consult with a doctor, the rule is the same: dial in advance to have a better care. "With more time, the professional can make a diagnosis or suggest a more effective treatment," says general practitioner Flávio Arruda.

Even if it is the first passage with the doctor, it is important to take exams or assessments that you have already done with other professionals. This is a quick way to get your history in his hands. Also, remember to tell which medications you take, for which complications you have already had, and if someone in your family has a chronic illness, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
Explain what you are feeling
You are the the best observer your body can have. So pay attention to the signs that he is telling you that something is wrong. As the doctor points out: "If the patient knows how to easily pass all the information, the medical consultation will be much more complete." And nothing to hide or be ashamed to say something: every data is essential for the diagnosis.
Do not be in any doubt
"No matter how silly or insignificant a patient's question should be asked The only way to ensure that the treatment will be done correctly is to follow the recommendations of the professional step-by-step.
