Concerned Florida medical malpractice litigator, Ramsey with Gary Roberts and Associates, P.A., explores a recent study conducted by HealthGrades.

The study found over half of all Medicare patient deaths reviewed were linked to four preventable conditions: Sepsis; pneumonia; heart failure and respiratory failure. Medicare is no longer reimbursing hospitals for the extra costs of treating certain injuries, infections, and complications occurring post-admission.
