Are non-English speaking patients at risk for surgical errors?

It is something most people never think about because they speak English, but when someone who does not speak English goes into surgery, there is always a fear they have no idea what is about to happen. This is horrible. Every person who seeks healthcare in New York should feel confident in that care and have the right to information about what is going on with their care.

Can going to the hospital harm my health?

You probably go to a New York hospital to get better. You expect to go in, get well and leave. For some people, though, this is not the case. They go in and get sicker or experience complications due to the environment. Forbes explains that hospitals have various ways they can actually make you worse than you were when you came in.

Nursing home staff careless and ignorant in implementing safety

Selecting a nursing home in New York is often no easy process for families who are concerned about the wellbeing and care of their elderly family member. Often, many families pour hours into comparing their options and visiting facilities to determine which one is the best fit. Unfortunately, there are situations where nursing homes are negligent in the way they care for their residents and as a result, put the safety of their residents in harm's way. 

Women should work with their doctor to prepare for childbirth

When a woman is preparing to give birth in New York, it does not matter if it is her first pregnancy or if she has given birth before, each birthing situation can be very different and require both mental and physical preparation. What many women fail to recognize is how imperative it is that they work with their doctor to communicate their desires. Women who tell their doctors their concerns and desires promptly without sacrificing honesty are often much more confident when it comes time to deliver their baby. 

Being a supportive caregiver to a family member in a nursing home

When you collaborate with other family members to decide how to best care for an aging loved one in New York, chances are each of you spend considerable time weighing your options for the most comfortable and compassionate care. When you settle on a nursing home as your best option, transitioning your loved one into that environment will take time and encouragement on your part. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped many families protect their loved ones against elder abuse. 

Why do prescription errors happen in a pharmacy?

Medical malpractice in New York can be more than surgical errors and incorrect diagnoses, although both of those issues are very real problems. Prescription errors are another common mistake that while seemingly innocent by its name, can be extremely dangerous to you if you are given an incorrect prescription. Understanding why this type of error occurs is essential so you can better protect yourself from an avoidable mistake. 

Who can administer medications in a nursing home?

The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home in Queens is no doubt a difficult one, yet one you make with their best interests in mind. You may not have the time nor the expertise to provide them the care they need (such as ensuring they take any medications that have been prescribed to them). A nursing home staff should (or so you think). Oftentimes, such facilities have difficulty recruiting and hiring qualified nursing personnel. Specifically regarding the management and administration of medications, all of those tasks should be done by such professionals. 

Reviewing the clinical indicators for a C-section

If you have recently experienced childbirth, then you know firsthand the toll that it can exact on your body. Typically, you are willing to endure the ordeal due to the outcome it produces. Yet oftentimes, delivery complications can easily lead to injuries to you and/or your baby (regardless of whether you delivered vaginally or via C-section). Many from New York have come to us here at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP concerned about the latter, whether due to them questioning if they needed to have a C-section at all or being concerned that their doctor never recommending one.
