A closer look at some of the most dangerous medication errors

Every day, hundreds of people in New York visit their doctor for advice regarding medical problems and to receive treatment for a variety of symptoms. Often, during the course of treatment, doctors prescribe antibiotics and other over-the-counter drugs to assist in the healing of the body. However, medication errors are not unheard of. In fact, they are quite common, and when a patient is not aware of the types of dangers they face when taking prescription drugs, they may be at risk of serious injury or death. 

Nursing home staff charged with elder abuse, murder

For many New York families, placing their elderly loved one in a nursing home facility is a decision that is not taken lightly. Finding a residence that prioritizes the well-being of its patients is a way to guarantee that disabled elderly persons have access to high quality medical care and assistance with day-to-day needs. However, there are circumstances when elder abuse or neglect can put any patient's life in danger and have damaging consequences. 

Guaranteeing compassionate care for your elderly loved one

If you have an elderly loved one living in New York who is in need of every day assistance, you may have begun researching and comparing your options for nursing homes. Often, you will find that selecting a facility who you entrust with your family member's well-being can be an incredibly challenging decision to make. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we understand the importance of guaranteeing the highest quality care for your elderly loved one. 

What should you do if you are injured during childbirth?

If you are preparing to give birth for the first time, chances are you have done your research to find a health care provider and hospital in New York that you are comfortable with. Equally as important is taking the time to get acquainted with the process of childbirth and the kinds of risks that are an inherent part of having a baby. Because birthing is such a significant event, your body is required to undergo intensive labor to get your baby here safely. Your awareness of what is and is not normal in the weeks following childbirth is important so you can recognize if you have been injured during the process. 

When a loved one is financially abused in a nursing home

Many different types of mistreatment occur in nursing homes, from emotional and verbal abuse to failing to change bed sheets and provide a resident with the care they deserve. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, or reside in a facility yourself, you may be worried about these problems on a daily basis. For example, you might suspect that someone else in the facility is being mistreated or that your loved one is being abused in some way and has chosen not to reveal the abuse. Moreover, it is essential to bear in mind that nursing home abuse takes other forms, such as abuse that is financial in nature.

Surgical errors: what to know

Scheduling surgery is no small task for most New Yorkers; with all of the financial planning, and not to mention the mental and physical preparation that is often required before a procedure, facing the day of surgery should be the last overwhelming step.

Patient vigilance can prevent prescription errors

While a majority of medical errors are the direct result of a misstep on the part of health care providers, patients play a critical role in guaranteeing their safety. People in New York who are seeking medical treatment can secure a better defense against the dangers of medical malpractice by maintaining vigilance and playing a proactive role in their health care. 

Family to receive multi-million dollar payout after birth injury

When soon-to-be parents arrive at a New York hospital full of anticipation and nervous excitement for the arrival of their new baby, they are often consumed by thoughts of how their lives are about to change. They place an incredible amount of trust in their doctor and the hospital staff to facilitate the baby's arrival through a safe and efficient delivery. However, poor execution, carelessness and bad judgment can all be contributing factors that put any baby at risk of suffering a birth injury.
