Catholic Church implicated in medical malpractice suit

Medical physicians and hospitals in New York and states around the country are responsible for providing patients with responsible and objective care and advice. In many cases, patients rely on doctors to make important medical decisions and educate them on their condition without questioning physicians' motives or personal beliefs. In one high-profile hospital negligence lawsuit, however, the plaintiff claims that she was denied proper care because of restrictive guidelines established by the Catholic Church.

Woman claims surgical mistakes led to her double amputation

The only reason many medical procedures can be considered minor is because surgeons have performed them thousands of times. No matter how comfortable a doctor may be diagnosing and/or treating an ailment, however, every case must be considered unique and with care. Physicians at one Long Island, New York, hospital are facing a medical malpractice lawsuit for allegedly making serious mistakes that ultimately risked a woman's life and left her permanently disabled.

Physicians held accountable for life-threatening birth injury

Sadly, thousands of babies are born every year fighting for their lives. Whether they are born with a serious medical condition or experience life-threatening complications during delivery, they require immediate and accurate medical care. That's why it's imperative that medical staff in New York hospitals and beyond are always prepared to meet the needs of newborn patients at all times. Two doctors were recently found responsible for causing the nearly fatal birth injuries of a nine-year-old boy.

The politics of documenting nursing home abuse

Individuals admitted into New York nursing home facilities are often extremely medically and physically vulnerable. Many patients require 24-hour oversight and often rely on the skill of medical staff to assist with basic personal care. Unfortunately, a patient’s level of dependence on others can translate into nursing home abuse or neglect. As state legislatures, patients’ families and nursing home facilities address concerns over incidents of the mistreatment of patients in nursing homes, many debate the potential advantages and drawbacks of using surveillance cameras in patient rooms.

Mistrial despite medical malpractice guilty verdict

Unfortunately, determining liability in a lawsuit does not always bring closure to the issue. Medical malpractice lawsuits tried in New York and other states around the country can be complicated and compromised in the event that the jury is unable to determine how much the plaintiff should be entitled to in damages. And while such technicalities may seem minor, they can have a serious impact on the outcome of the case. For instance, a mistrial was called recently in a case where the defendant had already been found guilty of making serious surgical mistakes.
