Properly reporting nursing home abuse in New York

Those who come to us here at Futterman, Sirotkin, and Seinfeld with accusations of nursing home abuse are typically shocked to learn just how common this problem is. Yet what’s even more shocking is how widespread the issue could potentially be. According to information gather by The New York State Elder Abuse Prevalence Study, only one in every 25 cases of abuse is ever actually reported.

What is The Joint Commission?

New York hospitals can be intimidating places. Part of what makes them this way may be the idea that one has little choice when it comes to staying in any of the over 200 hospitals the American Hospital Directory lists as operating in New York. That perceived lack of choice can be even more frustrating given that many find it difficult to get background information on hospitals other than that what their employees are willing to give. Thus, one may have no idea whether or not complaints that require the involvement of New York hospital malpractice attorneys have been filed or are currently pending against a facility. Fortunately, there is one source health care consumers can turn to for more specific information on the hospitals in their areas.

Examining the facts behind URFOs

Thanks to advances in medical science, surgical intervention has become much safer in recent years. Yet that's to say that every surgery performed in Queens is guaranteed to avoid any complications. There are some unfortunate surgical outcomes that are beyond the control of health care providers, and thus may not require the intervention of Queens surgical errors lawyers. Many surgical mistakes, however, can often be attributed to blatant negligence of behalf of a surgeon and/or surgical team. The unintended retention of foreign objects following surgery is certainly one of them.

The other type of nursing home abuse

Many of the clients who visit us here at Futterman, Sirotkin, and Seinfeld following cases of elder abuse share the same story: they paid close attention to their loved ones’ conditions following their admissions to New York nursing homes, yet never noticed any physical signs of abuse. What they didn’t know is that the abuse caretakers were perpetuating against their family members or friends wasn’t to their bodies, but their bank accounts.
