Identifying and addressing hospital negligence

According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, attempts to increase the safety of hospital patients has saved many lives and significantly cut health care costs. The AHRQ claims that roughly 50,000 fewer hospital patients lost their lives and an estimated $12 billion was saved from 2010 to 2013 as a result of these attempts. Furthermore, the AHRQ reports that the number of hospital-acquired conditions declined by 1.3 million (17 percent) over this period. Unfortunately, far too many hospital patients continue to suffer because of hospital negligence in New York, NY, and around the nation.

Although there are a number of steps hospitals can take to increase the safety of their patients, some facilities and the medical professionals they employ fail to properly take the needs of their patients into account, which sometimes causes considerable suffering and loss of life. From understaffing to doctor errors that could have been prevented, there are many reasons why hospital malpractice still occurs throughout the United States and it is very important for patients to understand their rights and immediately address negligent or incompetent care.

The New York State Department of Health has published useful information on their website for anyone who believes they are a victim of medical negligence. In addition to covering the rights of patients in New York State hospitals, the Department of Health also helps people understand how to file a complaint. Furthermore, victims of a hospital error or negligence should closely evaluate all of their options and may want to consider taking legal action.
