One of the worst things about a medical condition or issue popping up is that, in some cases, the condition or issue begets more trips to the hospital and more medical bills to pay. For some people, this is simply the way it goes. It doesn't necessarily have to be an endless cycle of trips to medical facilities, but it can feel that way to people who have been dealing with it for a long time.
We bring this up because, in some ways, this is what can happen as a result of a medical error. Someone goes to a hospital or to the doctor's office expecting tremendous care. Instead, a major mistake turns their life upside down. They may need prescriptions, procedures, or even surgeries -- and maybe extensive rehabilitation -- to recover from the initial medical mistake.
