When it comes to medical errors that can cause brain damage, especially in Miami or Florida where healthcare and patient care are poor, brain injury accidents are plenty and usually related to:
Doctors in Florida are expected to meet their obligation to meet a certain standard of care. The standard of care includes quickly and accurately diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions, illnesses, and injuries.

The medical personnel who works with patients during treatment can include physicians, therapists, nurses, orderlies, and specialists working at any hospital or medical facility in Florida. With so many medical professionals involved in the medical act, it is important to keep careful records and facilitate communication between everyone involved. Good communication can help prevent mistakes and prevent debilitating injuries.
Another cause of traumatic brain injuries can be inadequate training. Medical professionals who are inadequately trained may be a risk to patients. Training should include education about medical treatments and procedures, but can also include important day to day protocols to protect patients from infection and injury (such as correct sanitization, bandaging, maintaining records, and other tasks).
