Hospital Negligence Archives

How Hospital Administrative Errors Can Kill

People are dying in the hospital--and not necessarily because of the illness or disease that brought them in. Earlier this year, The Washington Post reported medical errors as the third leading cause of death in the United States. Patient identification mix-ups are often to blame for these unfortunate errors.

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.

Overcrowding and other emergency room problems

Every year, far too many people suffer debilitating injuries and even lose their lives because of urgent care mistakes, overcrowding and other problems in the emergency room. In New York, NY, and across the country, some of these emergency room errors constitute medical malpractice and it is important for victims to take action. Whether someone experiences a drug interaction injury as a result of a prescription error or does not receive the treatment they need soon enough because of delayed care, it is imperative for negligent medical professionals and urgent care facilities to be held accountable.

Recovering from medication errors

When people take drugs that have been prescribed by their doctor, they often assume that the medication will not harm them. Unfortunately, in New York, NY, and around the country, many people have suffered serious injuries and even lost their lives because of a prescription error. At the law offices of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we are committed to helping patients who are dealing with the consequences of these errors move forward.

Hospital negligence: an all-too-common problem

Patients in New York and throughout the country are subjected to hospital negligence on a daily basis. Whether someone's health suffers as a result of doctor errors, an incorrect treatment, understaffing or any other issue, hospital negligence must be addressed immediately.

New trends present new risks for medical malpractice

Each time an individual visits their doctor or seeks medical attention at a New York hospital, personal information regarding everything from their medical history to their medication list to their contact details becomes accessible to a number of other parties. That is why strict policies and safeguards are in place to protect patient confidentiality. With advances in technology and changing approaches to modern medicine, however, some fear that the rights and privacy of patients may be at risk, leading to other issues like medical malpractice.

Emergency Room errors may increase as conditions deteriorate

Sadly, it has become common knowledge that anyone that goes to the emergency room can expect a long wait to be seen by a doctor in most cases. Similarly, it's not entirely unheard of for New York ER patients to go unnoticed and unattended for hours at a time. That's why the results of a new study grading the overall condition of emergency rooms around the country might not surprise some, even though they may be a testament to the prevalence of ER medical malpractice cases across the nation.

New York bill on time limit for medical malpractice pulled

When a hospital error is committed in New York City, it is often the victim of the error who suffers the most since he or she is the one who experiences the pain, anguish and the continued stress of going back and forth to medical providers. Doctor errors, especially in diagnostics, are considered to be one of the leading issues in medical mistakes according to several studies released in the last year.
