Lawsuit accuses medical professionals of medical malpractice

There are many challenges for the healthcare industry today but none of those challenges should interfere with the care that a patient in Queens receives. Doctor errors have been proven to be preventable with the right systems and protocols in place. Medical errors are often the result of medical staff failing to follow through on things such as test results, listening to the patient's information and double checking to verify that the patient is receiving the right treatment.

New York hospital admits removing wrong organ during operation

Despite the advancements made in modern medicine, there are many problems that still exist, including surgical mistakes. Many medical malpractice lawsuits concern an error made by a surgeon or surgical staff that simply should not have happened. For the victims of these mistakes, some may experience a worsened condition or may struggle with new medical problems as well as financial difficulties. Sadly, many mistakes can be averted through careful monitoring by surgical staff.

Medical malpractice lawsuits fueled by misdiagnoses

Emergency rooms in New York hospitals are filled with people who are either experiencing chronic pain or are in need of some other type of medical care that cannot wait. When emergency room mistakes occur, such as misdiagnoses, the patient may be at grave risk. A wrong diagnosis can lead to a prescription error, a delay in the patient receiving the right kind of treatment and even death if the right diagnosis is never found.

Supervision neglect responsible for veteran’s death by overdose

Nursing homes in New York City often provide a place where veterans of previous wars can be cared for, but sadly, they do not always receive the best of care. Some are subjected to nursing home neglect or even abuse, putting them at risk of injury and death.  Instead of receiving the highest level of honor and respect that they deserve, veterans can be victims of malnutrition, mistreatment, and even deliberate abuse. Sometimes the nursing home negligence goes on for years before it is addressed.

One hospital addresses hospital errors with transparency approach

Many times, New York hospitals are places where things are kept quiet and communication between medical staff and patients is limited to safe topics such as their medical condition or improvement. Few will actually admit to committing medical errors, acknowledging that staff, after all, is only human and everyone is prone to making mistakes. A hospital error can be made at any time with a mistake in calculating medication, a delay in a patient's care or an accident that occurs during a surgical procedure.
