Felony charges filed in nursing home neglect case

When individuals are confronted with difficulties related to a serious medical condition and/or the natural process of aging, they should be able to trust in the level of care they receive in a nursing home setting. Tragically, however, incidents of nursing home neglect are not uncommon in facilities across the country. Marking that May 11th is the start of National Nursing Home Week, a recent incident involving 17 Buffalo, New York, nursing home staff highlights just how pervasive nursing home negligence can be.

Millions of patients subjected to unnecessary operations

The prospect of undergoing almost any type of medical procedure or surgery can be unnerving at best. Thousands of patients in New York hospitals experience serious medical complications as a result of surgery every year, and many are forced to live with the permanent consequences. That is why the decision to undergo surgery must be based on the informed and responsible advice of physicians and medical professionals, and in consideration of the potential benefits versus all possible risks. Given that a new study found that a large number of Medicare patients across the country undergo unnecessary medical procedures annually, concerns must be raised over harmful surgical errors and poor judgment on the part of physicians.

Could emergency room mistakes have contributed to overdose death?

Illegal drugs are always dangerous and highly volatile, as the origin and quality of substances is often unknown. As a result, thousands of people experience adverse reactions and overdoses every year in New York and across the country. That is why it is the responsibility of emergency responders and physicians to approach every drug overdose case with care to ensure that the victim is properly monitored for complications and/or changes in their condition. Tragically, one teenage girl recently died of a drug overdose after supposedly receiving medical attention, raising serious concerns over possible medical errors.

Some medical malpractice verdicts may reflect personal motives

Many times, a malpractice victim's health and entire way of life depends on the outcome of their lawsuit. Not only are medical malpractice suits crucial to upholding patient care standards in the medical community but they serve as an important legal resource for patients and their families. The integrity of the judicial process may be in question for some victims, however, now that there is evidence to suggest that some federal court judges may have a financial stake in the rulings they make.

Rushing visits can cause doctor errors

Most people can to relate to how difficult it can be to describe the symptoms of an injury or illness to another person. Explaining how one feels is often frustrating and even embarrassing because things like pain are very subjective. It's for that reason that New York doctors and medical professionals are trained on how to effectively listen to their patients and make sound judgments regarding medical symptoms and diagnoses. Given current patient-care conditions, however, physician inattentiveness may result in serious medical errors.
