Common medical mistakes that lead to medical malpractice

Doctors and health care personnel belong to a group of professionals you should be able to trust implicitly with your life. You go to them for medical advice, treatments and surgical procedures to keep you healthy. But with the number of medical malpractice claims rising each day in Kew Gardens, you may find your faith in medicine dwindling. 

Three options for birthing providers

Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in a couple's life together. But it can also bring with it stress, uncertainty and the need to make important decisions about the birthing process. Assuming a healthy mother with a pregnancy that doesn't present any unusual challenges (such as twins) or a medical history or serious chronic medical conditions that might complicate things (high blood pressure or diabetes), couples have options when choosing a practitioner to facilitate the birthing process. Knowing the benefits and limitations of each type of practitioner can help make this decision process easier. 

Poor working conditions for nurses linked to medical errors

Despite the use of modern technology and advancements in medical science, many patients in New York continue to be the victims of hospital negligence In some rare cases, a surgeon may have erred and operated on the wrong site or left objects behind in the body.

Surgical errors result in loss of New York man's nose

Doctors in New York City who decide to specialize in surgery spend years learning from more experienced physicians and therefore it is difficult to understand why surgical errors happen. When a patient is injured during a surgery, that person may have to undergo additional surgeries in order to repair the damage, experience undue pain and suffering, and face thousands of dollars in additional medical care.

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.

Doctor faces unprofessional conduct charges after surgical errors

A physician promises to do everything they can to keep their patients safe from harm and heal them. However some doctors do things that violate that promise, exposing victims in New York City to surgical errors that could have been avoided. If a surgeon begins making multiple surgical mistakes, those mistakes are generally reported to the state's medical board, which can result in charges and an investigation to see if other patients under the doctor's care may have been harmed.

Medical errors increase for interns working less hours

Becoming a doctor requires a great deal of dedication and sacrifice. It means sleeplessness, long hours of study, horrific exams, and a willingness to miss out on other activities in order to care for others. Sometimes these can take a toll on doctors in New York City and create a problem where medical errors are being made, putting patients at risk. While the medical industry has tried a number of different things to lower the number of doctor errors, it seems that perhaps they may be looking in the wrong places.

Multiple emergency room misdiagnoses leads to years of pain

Nothing can be more frustrating than to be given different medical diagnoses and finding out that each one is incorrect. When people walk into a New York City emergency room, they expect a doctor to find out what is wrong with them and provide the correct treatment. Yet, many patients are given the wrong diagnosis, leading to additional pain and suffering. Many times emergency room errors can be avoided if doctors would look at all the facts and follow through in planned testing.

Robot surgeons also commit surgical errors on patients

Technology is an amazing thing that has made many improvements in the medical industry, especially when it comes to surgery. Many delicate surgeries in New York City hospitals and other large medical centers are now done through the use of robot surgeons but it is important to understand that surgical errors can still happen and do occur in these types of surgeries. The question then comes up of what victims of surgical mistakes made by a non-human can do in terms of compensation.

Hospital terminates healthy fetus in unnecessary surgery

For many couples in New York City, the expected arrival of a new baby is an exciting period of time. There is a nursery to be decorated, the receiving of congratulations from family members and friends and baby showers to attend. In addition, expectant mothers and fathers have the exhilaration of feeling the baby kick, hearing the heartbeat for the first time and other experiences associated with the growth of new life. The last thing they expect is to be the victims of medical malpractice that results in the loss of that baby.
