Therefore, the lesser-earning spouse may want to seek alimony -- also known as spousal support -- from his or her ex.

Errors in medical records could lead to medical malpractice

It is not unheard of for physicians to make mistakes when treating patients in Connecticut or elsewhere in the nation. According to a Johns Hopkins study, each year approximately 250,000 individuals in the United States lose their lives because of a medical mistake. Some of these mistakes can be found in a person's health records. In fact, according to one researcher, around 70 percent of medical records contain incorrect information. Mistakes can be made when copying and pasting information on electronic medical records, when a physician makes a typo or when a physician mishears something. Mistaken identity could also lead to the wrong information being included in a person's medical records.
