May 2018 Archives

Can name confusion result in receiving the wrong surgery?

Surgical errors are a tragic form of medical malpractice not only because they can result in great harm or even death, but because they should never happen at all. Many surgical mistakes occur as a result of poor planning or organization. Sometimes a New York patient that is scheduled for an operation may actually receive the wrong type of surgery. In these cases, the surgery was intended for someone else and a mix-up occurred.

Medical conditions that are often misdiagnosed

Many people do not realize how common misdiagnoses are in the medical community. According to USA Today, the frequency of medical misdiagnosis in the health care community is between five and 44 percent; that comes out to millions of misdiagnoses a year.

How employee burnout can lead to medical malpractice

When it comes to medical errors and negligence, many New Yorkers might not realize that the issue is one that continues to plague the health care industry. Many physicians and nurses are not the cold and callous individuals that many people think they are. Instead, patients are finding themselves in danger of receiving bad care because the very professionals they must rely on are overworked and burnout. 

What questions should you ask to avoid a drug interaction?

You have recently been prescribed a new medication to take to help relieve symptoms you have been experiencing for quite some time now. You have met with your health care provider in New York and received a minimal amount of information about the purpose of the new drug. Understanding how to use it properly is critical to protecting yourself from a deadly drug interaction. 

A closer look at how you can stay safe in the hospital

You have just received word that your upcoming health care treatment is going to require a prolonged stay at a hospital in New York. While that thought may be met with hesitation in regards to putting your life and routine on hold temporarily, you should also be thinking about your safety during your time at the hospital. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we understand the risks that hospital patients face when they put their lives in the hands of health care professionals. 

Know what to look for in a reputable hospital

The thought of having to visit the hospital is rarely a positive one for many people in New York. Often, hospital visits are unexpected and the result of an injury, an unexplained illness or persistent health concerns. When people are choosing which hospital to visit, their commitment to doing research and comparing reviews can go a long way in determining the kind of treatment they will receive. 

Is now the right time to buy a home?

Owning your own home in Queens is part-and-parcel of the American dream. Yet buying a home always has been (and continues to be) a very complex process. Dealing with those complexities may intimidate many to the point of not even wanting to buy unless market conditions are favorable. How can you tell when they are? It may seem difficult, but paying attention to interest rate forecasts may serve as a predictor of when it is best to buy. If current forecasts are to be believed, now may be the time to buy a home before higher rates (combined with other factors) make it even more difficult to do so. 

Bicyclists beware of potholes

While cycling is quickly being adopted as the preferred mode of transportation by many in the U.S., countless people in New York City have relied on their bikes to get them where they need to go for years. The city's unique layout makes it ideal for a thriving bicycle transportation network. However, entering on to the city's roads on a bike is not without its hazards. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that nearly 467,000 bicycle-related injuries occurred in the U.S. in 2015 alone. Most might assume that those injuries were due to collisions with cars, yet an equally hazardous threat faces bicyclists that travel on roadways: potholes. 

Nursing home employees charged with neglect after patient death

When families in New York opt to put their elderly loved ones in a nursing home facility, their decision is often made with a lot of concern. While they may be looking forward to receiving attentive help with the day-to-day needs of their family members, they are also trusting that the facility and its staff will provide compassionate care.
