New Doctors to Blame for Spike in Fatal Medical Errors Each July

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

According to a study by the Society of General Internal Medicine published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, new doctors and medical students becoming more active in patient care are to blame for an annual spike in fatal medical errors each July.


Medication errors are common fatal mistakes during this time frame. The study showed that the incidence of medication errors and other fatal medical mistakes spike by 10% each July from 1979 to 2006 and that July was the only month to see such a dramatic increase. The study further showed that this was only true in communities with teaching hospitals.

If you have been the victim of a medical mistake, you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney to evaluate your case. One call to CGWC does it all.
