April 2017 Archives

Forceps injury identified as cause of boy’s brain damage

Advances in the field of obstetrical and gynecological science in recent years have helped to greatly reduce the number of delivery complications. However, these new improvements may have caused many in Queens to overlook the fact that delivering a baby is still a complicated process. While new technology allows doctors to more easily determine when intervention is needed to assist a delivery, the methods used to perform those interventions can still cause harm. Unfortunately, the victims that experience this harm are often left to deal with the consequences for the rest of their lives.

Understanding the risks associated with gestational diabetes

Expectant couples in Queens may go through their entire pregnancies hoping that once the moment to deliver their babies arrives, they will be able to avoid any complications that might result in birth injuries. What many may not understand is that the seeds of complications are often planted during the prenatal process. Certain conditions can contribute to the risk of delivery issues. One such condition is gestational diabetes.

Why is your doctor spending less time with you?

You go to see your doctor in Kew Gardens likely expecting that he or she will take the time to sit down and devote all of his or her attention to you. However, such an expectation is often not met these days as doctors seem to be flying from one exam room to the next at ever-increasing speeds. This may prompt the question of how likely is it that your doctor will be able to correctly diagnose your medical problems if he or she is only giving you a few minutes of attention?

Woman alleges improper equipment caused vocal chord damage

For patients about to receive medical or surgical treatment in New York City, the level of anxiety that they may be experiencing is likely correlated with the type of procedure they’re scheduled to have performed. Procedures involving the head, neck or internal organs may solicit quite a bit of worry, while surgeries to correct musculoskeletal issues may seem less risky. However, any surgical procedure should be considered serious, as any can produce complications that could cause life-altering results.

Finding a safe nursing home for your loved one

Caring for your elderly family member in Queens can be quite a challenge, especially if you have other obligations in your life such as your work and your children. Many of those that we here at Futterman, Sirotkin and Seinfeld, LLP have helped have faced such a challenge before and ended up turning to a nursing home or senior care center for assistance. That idea may seem appealing to you, yet at the same time, stories of abuse perpetrated by nursing home employees may give you pause. How are you to know if there are facilities in your area that you can entrust your loved one to?

What is HIPAA?

When you head to the hospital in Kew Gardens, any concern that you may have regarding what could potentially go wrong with your visit is likely limited to complications with your procedure or possibly acquiring an infection. These are the types of hospital errors that typically make headlines. However, there is another type of error whose damage may not be immediately apparent, but can ultimately cause just as much chaos in your life as any type of physical harm: the unauthorized disclosure of information from your medical record.

Understanding the risks associated with prolonged labor

Most expectant couples in Queens (particularly those who are about to become first-time parents) likely adopt a “the-worst-is-over” attitude towards the end of a pregnancy. However, one major hurdle remains before the arrival of their babies: the delivery. Any number of complications can occur during the delivery process. It stands to reason, then, that the longer a woman remains in labor, the greater the risk there is for delivery complications to occur.

Avoiding the potential of post-operative DVT

When you go in for surgery at a hospital or medical center in Kew Gardens, any concern that you might have of being be the victim of a surgical error likely goes away once your procedure has been performed. Yet as many of the people that we here at Futterman, Sirotkin and Seinfeld, LLP have helped in the past can attest to, problems can easily arise during your post-operative care. Among the more common complications that surgical patients may face is deep vein thrombosis.

Types of surgical errors and their causes

Surgery is supposed to save or improve your life, not endanger it. However, too often, surgeons and other medical staff make minor mistakes with major consequences. Zero risk is impossible, but these common surgical errors are completely avoidable. Be aware of the types and causes, and learn what to do to prevent it from happening to you.

Lawsuit claims VA provider failed to diagnose man’s cancer

Those in Kew Gardens who go to hospitals and healthcare clinics looking to see what might be ailing them no doubt believe in the diagnoses that their clinicians give to them. However, what is often lost in the desire to trust in the skills and expertise of healthcare providers is the fact that they are only human. This makes them subject to both errors in judgment as well as the temptation to allow other factors to influence their decision-making.
