Was my medication error medical negligence?

Currently, doctors have a list of more than 10,000 medications in their supply of treatment options. Even though medical advancements have meant better treatment for people in the United States, there is a higher risk of adverse drug events, also known as ADEs. The Patient Safety Network estimates that ADEs account for about 700,000 emergency room visits annually.

Improper medication blamed on nursing home patient's death

Part of the responsibility of a nursing home in Queens is to make sure that their residents receive the right kind of medication and the correct dose of that medication. Improper medication given to patients can cause severe problems and some have even died from the errors made. Patients have suffered from additional health issues due to such nursing home negligence and the tragic thing is that in some cases the overmedication is deliberate.

U.S. agency releases report on how to avoid medical errors

Every time you walk into a New York City doctor's office or hospital, you essentially put your life into another person's hands. The wrong diagnosis, prescription and even understaffing can greatly affect your health. While you would hope that medical errors are rare occurrences, studies being conducted show that they happen more often than you think. In fact some people may actually have been the victim of a hospital error or doctor's mistake without even knowing it.

Serious medical errors don't always lead to license suspension

Whenever you make a serious error at work, you can generally expect a serious consequence to follow. You could be written up, placed on probation, have your professional license yanked or even lose your job. Therefore, it would only make sense to assume that when doctors in New York City are found guilty of making serious medical errors, they would be subjected to the same types of disciplinary action. Surprisingly, while many doctors are given a reprimand or have to pay a fine, they are still allowed to continue practicing medicine, which could put other patients at risk.

Surgeons not immune to distractions and mistakes

Many of us have difficulty performing job duties or other important tasks while distracted. Employees who are distracted by aside conversations or other stimuli tend to exhibit a decrease in productivity and an increase in mistakes and errors. A new study shows that surgeons are no different and that, when distracted, the likelihood of surgical errors occurring greatly increases.

Patients Would be Able to Report Medical Mistakes Under Pilot Program

A program currently being pushed by the Obama administration would give patients the opportunity to report medical mistakes they may have experienced while receiving care by hospitals, nurses, doctors and pharmacists.

When it Comes to Medical Care, Sometimes Less Is More

Medical mistakes can take many forms, which makes them difficult to track and even harder to prevent. Many doctors respond to the possibility of errors by ordering more tests to confirm their diagnoses or to make sure they've covered every possibility in their patients.

Drug Shortages Leading to Troubling Medication Errors

Medication errors have long been a major problem in New York and across the country. Now things are getting even worse, as chronic shortages of key medicines increase the risk of drug errors.
