Something went wrong during medical treatment
Someone you love died during or after surgery?
Your gut instinct tells you something’s not right?
Can’t get a straight answer?
If it is yes to any of the above, more than likely an “adverse event” occurred, medical jargon for a mistake.
Off to hospital?

The medical merry-go-round
Find you’re being bounced around the system from hospital to health department, to health commission to medical regulator?
Hospital heavies stalled handing over information you’re entitled to have then got their lawyers on to you when you wouldn’t go away?
Contacted your Member of Parliament who, when it all got too hard, acted like a postman and just passed your letter along to someone else?
Driven up the wall trying to get answers?
It’s the 3-D experience: Disaster↔Dishonesty↔Deceit←

The medical error epidemic
Hundreds of thousands of Australians are adversely affected by medical error each year; thousands die unnecessarily. This creates demands for our specialised expertise, which never ceases.
Whilst investigating cases, reporting medical treatment deaths to coroners and criminal behaviour to police, monitoring error-prone hospitals, exposing medical disasters, hospital scandals and government cover-ups in media exposés, we receive thousands of emails and just as many documents.
To handle this, we rely on donations from people who support our awareness, compassion and action.
Take the reins and be in control
The key to getting on top of your medical matter is being organised; that is how Medical Error Action Group’s Information Packs can help you help yourself.
You’re not on your own
The people who run Medical Error Action Group know the system inside out, all the pitfalls, and all the advantages to place you in a superior position. They understand your plight, loss, frustration and outrage, as they’ve been through it themselves. It is why Medical Error Action Group was founded.
Being informed is imperative
You need to devote time and energy to take on medical practitioners, hospitals and state/territory governments, and be prepared to do the hard slog. Being informed and knowing what’s ahead is vital. Bear in mind that no one will be more interested in your medical event than you.
