How do you know if your doctor has malpractice claims?

If you are looking for a new doctor in Indiana, it is imperative that you take adequate time to research a health care provider who can give you the type of committed and loyal medical treatment you desire. Part of this research should be into your doctor's past to get an idea of how satisfied his or her patients have been with the care they have received. Uncovering a malpractice claim is something that you can do with a bit of research, and something that can potentially save you time, money and your health in the future. 

According to Forbes Magazine, the internet provides a wealth of information that you can look through in determining how comfortable you feel in using a particular doctor for your health care needs. Often, you can read reviews left by former or current patients who can provide you with insight into the type of experience you may expect to have should you choose to use the doctor in question. 

If you are anticipating an upcoming hospital stay, the State Department of Health Services is an excellent resource to consult as you "interview" your hospital. You can find out what types of complaints have been filed against them in the past, as well as gauge their experience and confidence in dealing with specific medical situations. This is especially important if you are receiving specialized treatment of some kind. If you do uncover allegations against your health care provider but are worried about finding a new doctor, consider doing a little more research to see if the claims against them were a one-time situation or if they are recurring, to help you make your decision.
