Holding Manufacturers Accountable For Dangerous Drugs And Medical Devices
There are countless medical device and pharmaceutical companies that are, at this very moment, testing new products to determine if they are ready for use in patients. Whether they are at the research and development stage or possibly being used in early trials, the effectiveness of the drug or device is still yet to be determined. These companies do not yet know if the product they are testing will improve a person’s health. More importantly, they don’t yet know whether the device will cause unintended consequences or complications.
Because of the uncertainty, it is fair to ask if newer is better when it comes to medical products. The speed in which some of these products are pushed to the marketplace may mean that the proper testing simply has not been done before the devices are used on patients. Some of these new devices have caused serious health problems for many patients that could have been avoided with more extensive testing.
