What is duty of care?

When you go to see a doctor in New York, you have the right to expect that doctor to take care of you properly. If he or she does not, it could impact your health. A great example is when a doctor misses the symptoms and signs that you have a condition and fails to diagnose it. The responsibility of your doctor to provide adequate care, according to The National Law Review, is duty of care.

Do hospitals profit from surgical errors?

As a surgical patient in New York, you should be able to trust in your surgeons to always act in your best interest. However, a study conducted at a hospital in Texas approximately five years ago may have sown some seeds of doubt in patients' minds about doctors' intent as it seemed to indicate that hospitals make more money if patients develop complications after surgery because they require more medication and other treatments, as well as longer hospital stays. The implication was that hospitals may not have been doing all they could to prevent surgical complications and errors from occurring in the interest of making a profit off of patients' suffering.

Health department brings charges against New York oncologist

New York State was once home to one of the largest private cancer practices in the region at CCS Oncology. After a string of legal troubles over the last two years, including a bankruptcy filing and an FBI raid, the former president and CEO of the facility, also a radiation oncologist, now faces charges from the state Health Department, alleging incompetence and gross negligence in his treatment of seven patients. Of those seven patients, six are now dead.

How can you tell if your loved one is being treated poorly?

Even though your loved one has been in a New York nursing home for quite some time now and you did adequate research before deciding where to house him or her, you are starting to suspect that something is wrong. However, it is difficult to tell if your judgments are justified and your loved one is okay. Fortunately, there are warning signs that you can watch to help you recognize when better care should be provided.
